<p>Haha this is the shittest wine rack I've ever seen :P But I admire your creativity..</p>
Not the best looking wine rack I've seen, but I gave you a good rating as I really like what you did with the first picture in step two, was a really good way to combine a boring and necessary diagram and a boring but necessary picture to make it more interesting! Think I'll copy that technique for one of my ibles :)
Thank you for rating! Also, I combined two pictures in one in order to reduce excessive and repetitive ones in other steps. Uhm, about looking I like the simple shape, but I will try to improve the design...
I think I like the shape, it works well. It's the glued tab that's visible that I like less. Perhaps you could taper the tab at the front so it is less visible? Or cut a square out so that the tab is only there for the back four fifths.
I come back with another design for a wine rack. Check it out: <br> <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Tube-Wine-Rack/ <br> <br>Hope you like this one!
Ansanma, I love your suggestion to use thin boards of wood to make the cardboard skeleton look nice. I'm currently making this for Christmas, I'll be posting the picture of the finished project later. I plan on staining the wood to make it look really sleek.
I'm wondering about using this to hold the bottles of specialty German water I love so much- it would be so much more convenient than just letting them sit in a cabinet!
look cool made from Plexy glass
This is a really cool idea. Too bad my dad's Birthday was just today, I coulda made 'em this, he's a big wine-fan. xD Hmmm... I wonder if you could do this with wood? I think it'd work, I just can't figure out how you'd connect the pieces...Any ideas?
you could....once you have the basic triangle made, just put more obtuse angled shelf brackets on the sides and angle the ends of the main pieces the wine bottles sit on.
About wood I guess the better is to the change point of view... something like making a skeleton with strips and then adding thin board on sides.
Maybe you could, I don't know, use screws in the joint so it is going into part of the ply. Get my drift? (sorry, I wasn't very clear)
I think I got watcha mean kibbler, except doing that would take away the triangular look, and might look a little shabby. Thats what I was thinkin' at first, but I was tryin' to figure out a way to more professionally do it. But hey, it'd work. xD
nice idea.
