Christmas is coming and that means the endless hunt for that perfect gift for family and friends. Our PVC pipe wine rack is the perfect gift to make. You will find PVC pipe at your local hardware store and then all you need is a tube of PVC glue and a can of Rust-Oleum spray paint.

Step 1: You Will Need:

Length of 110mm diameter PVC pipe
Length of 50mm diameter PVC pipe
Tangit PVC glue
Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint in your choice of colour
TOOLS:
Mitre saw, handsaw, Dremel SawMax or multitool and cutting disc
80- and 400-grit sandpaper


Each section is cut to 180mm in length, which means you get two wine racks out of a single piece of 110mm and 50mm diameter pipe, unless you want to make a bigger wine rack like the one shown here.

Step 2: Cut and Sand

Cut all the pipes to 180mm length.
Sand any rough edges around the cut with 80-grit sandpaper. Sand the outside of the pipe with 400-grit sandpaper.
Wipe cleanwith a lightly damp cloth to remove all traces of debris.

Step 3: Spray With Rust-Oleum

Place the cut pipes upright on a piece of newspaper, so that you can spray the inside and outside of the pipe with Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint. Apply two coats, letting each coat dry before applying the next coat. Turn the pipes upside down and repeat to cover.

I made two wine racks, one black and one red.

Step 4: Glue the Pipe Sections Together

Apply a thin bead of PVC glue in a straight line down one of the long sections of pipe.
Carefully place a small pipe along this glue line, lining up the edges for a perfect fit.
Repeat this on three sections of large and small pipes.

Now you can glue these three sections together into any configuration.
Just make sure that the design sits level and balances nicely.

Step 5: Finished!

With Christmas around the corner, this would be the perfect gift for someone you know who loves drinking wine!
Neat! I love the style and simplicity. 2 things: <br> <br>Is the PVC glue needed, or effective, considering the PVC is painted? How strong is it, have you tried placing 8 bottles in it at once? <br> <br>And second, anyone have any idea for wall mounting this? Depending on the strength of the glue, I suppose a few L-brackets could be placed at the top/back of several of the pipes. What do you think?
You have to use PVC weld glue, or a glue specifically for PVC pipe. It sets almost instantly. I would make a wood frame to surround the pipes if you want to mount onto the wall.
