Introduction: IKEA Hack EXPEDIT Wine Rack

I have limited tools for woodworking, and wanted to construct a wine rack for my EXPEDIT. I looked at the available project ideas, and it involved using a table saw, that I am afraid to use because I need my fingers :)

With my miter saw, I was able to accomplish it! I also spent about $8 dollars for the whole project.

Step 1: Cut and Paint the Wood

I bought some wood, about 1x2 inch x 8 feet in size for 96 cents each. I measured the diagonal length of the cabinet cubby and cut the wood to length at a 45 degree angle. I cut one and put in place before cutting the next one, in case of wood irregularities. Or in case of tape measure irregularities.

I painted them then glued them in place. $3 and change for a sample size paint from hardware store.

Step 2: Insert Wood to Cubby

I inserted 9 wood pieces in each cubby, leaving a small space in the front of the cabinet for appearance purposes.

I glued using Elmer's wood glue, but the weight of the wine bottles will also hold the wood in place!
