Easy DIY Wine Rack

 

bar-1

 

This easy DIY wine rack is made from some pine scraps, but you can make using laminated pine, reclaimed timber, or your choice of wood. The project took an hour from start to finish.

 

YOU WILL NEED:
1 piece of pine 400 x 450mm

2 pieces of pine 180 x 250mm for the supports
4 of 5 x 50mm cut screws

Strips of pine moulding 450mm long for the base

120- + 180-grit sandpaper
Woodoc gel stain - we used traditional teak

Lint-free cloth

TOOLS:

Drill (min 550W)

30mm hole saw

Cordless screwdriver + bits

Mitre saw, or protractor and jigsaw

Quick clamps

Workbench

Tape measure, ruler and pencil

 

HERE'S HOW:

 

1. Divide the board into sections and mark to accommodate 8 wine bottles. You can make the wine rack larger if you want to add more bottles, but also increase the size of the supports if you do.

2. Using a drill and hole saw, clamp the board to your workbench, making sure that the underneath is free from obstruction.

 


 

GOOD TO KNOW

Placing a scrap piece of board underneath the board you are cutting will reduce chipping on the underside of the top board.


 

 3. After cutting out eight holes, take the time to sand all the cut edges smooth. Start with 120-grit and finish with 180-grit. If you have a Dremel MultiTool, use a sanding ring to cut down on the time spent sanding.

4. Our wine rack was stained with Woodoc gel stain in traditional teak. You can leave natural, if you prefer, and just add antique wax or wood preservative.

5. The supports for the wine rack are two pieces that are cut at a 30-degree angle. You can cut with a mitre saw, or use a protractor to line out the angle and cut out with jigsaw. These are screwed onto the back of the board using cut screws.
