Introduction: Wooden Wine Rack

About: Youtuber, photographer and Maker Follow me on Youtube at....

I've not seen a wooden wine rack like this before. I tried to find a DIY Wine Rack but couldn't so I thought I would build my own. I just wanted it to hold six bottle, wine or whisky, it doesn’t matter, and to have space to keep a couple of glasses too.

If you found this useful then why not buy me a coffee? ....


Planed softwood.

Mitre Saw


Centre Punch

Drill with bits

Step 1: Step 1 : Measure and Cut 5 Equal Pieces

Start with some planed timber of your choice, I just used an offcut of pine.

I set up my mitre saw to cut at 15 degrees, cut five lengths roughly 110mm long and then trimmed them all to 105mm long, so that I ended up with 5 pieces of equal length all with 15 degree cut on each end.

Step 2: Step 2 : Drill a Hole in the Centre of Each Piece

Find the centre of each piece by drawing lines from opposite corners.

Mark a hole on the outside edge of the pieces ( the longer side of each piece)

Punch a hole with a hole punch

Drill the hole to fit the neck of the bottles you want to display.

Step 3: Step 3: Cut Slots to Hang Glasses

With anther length of the same piece of timber, measure, mark and drill out 4 holes.

Then, draw lines from one edge and cut slots from one side of the timber.

Sand the slots so they are smooth.

Step 4: Step 4: Cut Re-inforcing Slots

Before glueing I cut slots to glue in splines of timber as reinforcement.

I had to make a little joig to hold the pieces and then very carefully use the mitre saw to cut slots... just 5 mm deep.

Step 5: Step 5 : Glue and Tap Together Pieces

I used wide gaffer tape or cloth tape for this.

Lay the pieces out side by side on the gaffer tape so they touch.

Apply glue to the edges, wait a little until it becomes tacky then slowly curve the pieces up so they form the arch shape.

Lay all of it on it's side and tape across the open side, tightly. Then adjust the fit of the pieces and leave to dry.

Step 6: Step 6: Reinforce With Splines and Sand Off.

Once the glue is dry remove the tape gently.

Measure and cut the base piece to fit the arch. Pre drill screw holes through from the bottom and screw into end pieces.

Cut short lengths of spline material ( I used offcuts of 6mm plywood) glue into place.

Once dry, saw off the excess and sand the whole piece.

I then finished with Danish Oil.

Step 7: Step 7: Attach to Wall

Once everything is dry, use a hidden picture clip to attached the rack to the all.

Fill with your preferred bottles and enjoy a glass of something!
