This is my first instructable, so let me know if you have any questions of if I should change something. This wine rack will hold more than 100 wine bottles (750ml bottles). This wine rack won't cost too much to build, especially if you have the wood lying around or can get some scraps from a construction site or something.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for death, dismemberment, new appendages, etc. that result from undertaking this project. This thing is solid and very sturdy- each shelf supported my 200lbs- still I'm not responsible if yours isn't as good and your wine collection dies from your lack of craftsmanship.
- 2x2 Furing Strips (45x 11" boards)
- 2x4 Studs (10x 30" boards, 4x60" boards, 2x11" boards)
- #8x2" screws (90x)
- #10x3" screws (40x)
- Stain if you want it.
- Saw (I used a table saw)
- Power drill (or screw driver with forearms like Popeye)
- Sanding implement (I used a palm sander)
- Clamps (I used 3" clams)
- Tape measure
- Small awl (optional)
Step 1: Cut and sand everything
Step 2: Build shelves
I drilled small pilot holes and then used the 2" screws. In order to space the boards evenly I used a scrap piece of wood cut to 2" so I didn't have to measure each and every space (as seen in the second picture).
I used the small awl to keep the pilot hole lined up while I clamped the boards before I fastened them down.
The shelves should look like those in the last picture.
