Sculpted Winerack, 1 of 4 I did simultaneously. This one is made from a $20 sheet of birch ply (home depot) and then scrap strips of mostly cherry, walnut, maple, oak and pine. This one was given to Mom for Mother’s day. Last Picture is the batch of racks together.

Made by gluing up into a massive block, tracing the desired design onto the wood, band-sawing out the shape, sanding smooth with an oscillating spindle sander, routing a profile and then finishing with two coats of Danish Oil.

Inspiration from Blackie_’s band saw winerack

Diggerjacks – I believe the final dimensions of this one was 16” high x 11 ” wide x 5.75” deep. It was shorter but wider than the others. It also holds the most wine bottles

Great idea. Will they hold regular sized wine bottles or all sizes? I guess it will hold both if the holes are larger enough..right?

Hawaiilad – They hold all size bottles, or at least most any normal sized wine bottles. When sketching the design I took a ‘small’ and ‘large’ wine bottle and traced the bottoms onto the wood which I used to vary the size of the holes. The sanding process then made sure that each hole was slightly larger than my trace line which turned out to be a great fit for most bottles
