WINE BOTTLE HOLDER
The Wine Bottle Holder is designed to enable persons with limited gripping ability to open a bottle of wine by holding the bottle in place and allowing the user to use two hands to engage a corkscrew. The device consists of a rectangular section of wood screwed into the corner of a kitchen drawer. Indentation in the wood holds the bottle against the drawer corner. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT: Designed by Dave Dolman for a user who had only one good gripping hand, making it difficult to hold the bottle and operate the corkscrew.
