Wine rack
« on: November 03, 2021, 10:40 PM »
Looking for some help to build a wine rack.

Have looked at options you can buy such as the x pattern sheets of material from lee valley.

Thinking of making something that would look cool and hold probably 12-18 bottles of wine. Was thinking the shape of a domino but they are too short. Rods such as aluminum rods etc

Let me know your ideas!

Something from clear acrylic would be cool and modern. The designs are endless and it's really subjective.  https://archplastics.com/residential-wine-cellars/

I didn't like how on most wine racks, you can't see the label on the bottle.

So I made mine like this.    A 3.5" hole saw and jigsaw does most of the work.     I have two racks, each 6 feet tall and each holds 14 bottles.   They mount to a wall.     (I just moved and have not mounted them yet, so for now just leaning against storage room wall)

Steve1 brings up a good point.  I dont drink wine but can see how one would want to be able to easily find a particular bottle without pulling each out.  So I would go with a sideways design if I was going to build one.  Hafele sells "wine post" for this.

I saw on TV a wine rack in a built-in wine cooler (room).

It consisted of two steel bars about 3/8" - 1/2" in diameter that were placed horizontally about 2 - 3 inches apart.    The ends of the rods were inserted in drilled holes in the walls.  The bottles rested on the two rods and the label was clearly visible.

For a single row of bottles, I think 1/2" wood dowels between two 6" wide boards would work fine.

The build would be a picture of simplicity.  Stack the two boards. Mark the locations and drill.  Then cut the dowels to length, glue and insert them in the drilled holes. 

As I recall they had some paper tags hanging from a few of the dowels.  I have no idea what information was on those tags, but the attachment was really easy. 

This is similar to what I saw on TV.   In this case it is all welded construction.



 

I've made two two wine racks in my life.  One was for my kitchen and consisted of three vertical boards spaced widely enough to accommodate a single stack of bottles. I nailed and glued 3/4" x 3/4" cleats on both sides of the vertical boards to support and space the bottles.  It turned out to be a royal pain to apply a finish to this, though after it was done, the function was fine.

The second was a vertical panel that attached to the wall with a series of short horizontal shelves.  To keep the bottles from rolling off the shelves, I added a 3/4" x 1-½ strip to the front of the shelf, with the 3/4" lip keeping the bottles from falling off the shelves.

It was not particularly space-efficient and it took an inordinately long time to assemble.

A board with holes drilled in it the approx diameter of the neck of the wine bottles.  Just stick the neck in.

I made one like that but I found the material had to be pretty thick for the bottle to hang reasonably level.  I spaced two pieces of stock.
