This wine rack came about when my youngest daughter mentioned that they might like some sort of a wine rack for Christmas. Well the hunt began for some sort of a plan. I found this one on the internet, can’t remember now where!!!! All it was was a two-page drawing, half of the pattern on one page and the other half on the other page. It, I think was to be just two pieces of wood standing freely with no connection to each other. I decided that I would add the stretchers between the two. The rack is made out of some Black Walnut that I got from my Dad’s neighbor. He had cut down a walnut tree a couple of years ago and was going to take it to the dump so I rescued it and had it slabbed. The stretchers are made from some hard rock maple that I picked up at a local architectural mill that they were throwing out. Just can’t let some things go to waste. The stretchers are let into the Walnut with a flush cut tennon. The wine bottle in the picture is only half full, was used for cooking, honest!!!!!! Not too fancy but unique.
