My First Wine Rack

What I consider to be my first REAL woodworking project from a while back. It wasn’t a little jig, or me messing around with a tool. Also it was my first time working with something other than pine. Used a pocket hole jig to attach each row to the upright. Nothing super special, but I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

Nice little wine rack you built yourself there.

Looks like you need to build a beer rack/shelf next! ;)

Looks great! Did you drill your holes first and then split them down the middle? What did you use to cut them? Thanks for posting!

Jeremy, I drilled the front holes with a 1.5” hole saw, and the back ones with a 3” hole saw. Then when all the holes were drilled (see the last picture for an example) i ripped the board in half. Unfortunately I didn’t have a table saw at this point. So it was done free hand with my circular saw.

Thanks Chase! I might use your design for later use! Free Hand with a circular saw? I’d figure out a way to screw that up! Nice work!
