I made these about a year ago but figured I would upload the project to Lumberjocks. My father has a set of these pine wine glass racks that my wife really liked. He made them probably 35 years ago and my wife asked me to make her some. My original plan was to make them out of pine and stain them a cherry color. Well while my wife was with me picking up a doweling jig at Woodcraft she saw some Jatoba and decided I should make them out of that.
The overall dimensions of the racks are about 5” wide by 43” long. They use cherry dowels to hold the wine glasses and hang with two keyhole hangers from the back side. They are very simplistic and it was the first time I had used a router to apply a round over to the edges. I used the doweling jig with a makeshift stop block to get the holes evenly spaced and centered. I used 3 coats of General Finishes Arm R Seal to finish it off.
