Materials and Tools:

  • 1/2" leather belt
  • jigsaw
  • tape measure
  • 220-grit sanding block
  • paintbrush
  • 8" x  8" piece of 3/4" oak wood
  • 1-1/2" brass screws
  • (4) wine glasses
  • wine bottle
  • drill
  • 1-1/2" spade bit
  • 3/16" drill bit
  • 1/2" drill bit
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • speed square
  • clear satin polyurethane
  • dark walnut wood stain

Cut Holes and Slits

Measure and mark the center of the oak wood piece. Drill a hole on the center mark using a 1-1/2" spade bit. Measure and mark a plus sign 1-1/2" from each corner on each side, for a total of four plus signs. Drill a hole on each plus mark using a 1/2" drill bit. Use a speed square to draw a line from each drilled hole to each of the corners of the wood block. Cut out the lines using a jigsaw, creating slits for the wine glasses.

Sand and Stain Wood

Sand corners and clean up edges using a 220-grit sanding block. Stain the wood using a dark walnut stain, and allow it to penetrate and dry according to label instructions. Apply a coat of clear satin polyurethane to preserve and protect the wood and finish.

Wrap Belt

Place the belt buckle in the center of one side of the wood block and on the adjacent side. Secure the belt to the wood using brass screws. Wrap the belt around the perimeter of the wood block, and loop it through the buckle. Pull it tightly, and make a mark with a pencil where the prong touches the belt.

Secure Belt

Drill a hole on the mark using a 3/16" drill bit. Secure the belt buckle by sliding the prong through the newly drilled hole, and cut off the excess strap.
