Wine Bottle Puzzle



Actually, it’s a good thing that you can’t get to the wine until after the puzzle is solved, or you might just give up too easily.

The base of the puzzle is made up of ½" material but you can use ¾" material providing you leave at least 3 ¼" x 3 ¼" inside space for the average bottle.

The top part of the puzzle (that sits on the wine bottle) can be turned or shaped by hand.

Cut out the shapes as shown in the drawings.

Make ⅛" dadoes in the sides to hold the bottom.

Screw the locking panel with the two ⅜" holes into place before assembly.

The sides are glued together with simple butt joints.

Be sure to set the bottom into place as you clamp up.

The ropes are glued into place as shown.
