Got an old book of DIY woodworking plans, from a used book store.

First thing I flipped to was a wine rack—coincidentally, something we’ve talked about buying for our kitchen/living room.

This one called out white oak, with darker walnut plugs (to conceal exposed dowel holes, and used to provide a decorative contrast).

I got a chance to pick up two new hole saws, a doweling jig (neat!), my first Forstner bit, a couple of strap clamps, and a bunch of beautiful wood.

Nothing particularly complicated, but … a real joy to build.

I have some final clean-up to do, once the glue dries, and then it gets transported (I walk it to the garage) to the Finishing Shop where the Prep Department (my wife) will stain and urethane it.

After that, it’ll serve as a roughly 18 Liter IV, keeping us fairly well hydrated with wine over the fall and winter :-)

A link to the photo album (only a handful of pics … I promise!)

Pics ===> “Projects” once it’s finished….

Nice looking wine rack. Consider yourself extremely fortunate that you have a finishing department! That is one of the toughest jobs in this wood working trade-LOL. Glad to see you gat afew new tools out of the job as well. Please remember us and post the finished project as well. Welcome to Lumber Jocks and keep on keeping on.
