8 Bottle Wine Rack

Wood: Monkey Pod top, Ambrosia Maple legs, Canarywood racks, Curly Walnut feet

Finish: Teak Oil

I’ve been working on two of these, but I have decided yet what I’m going to use for the top of the second one.

The racks and feet are secured to the legs with Festool Dominos.

Great looking wine rack! That monkey wood is very nice, and I like the tapered legs!

The reverse taper on the legs is a cool idea.

Nice rack. The wine should be stored so the cork stays wet tho.

The angle of the racks is slight, ensuring that the corks will stay wet.

Michael: are the dados in the cross pieces for the bottle supports cut square? and then that assembly just tilted a bit to get the angle?

Thanks

Basically, that is correct. The rear cross piece is attached about 6mm higher than the front cross piece. Also, the bottle supports attach under the front cross piece and above the rear, which aids in creating an angle. (See the photo of the assembled racks on the workbench.)
