At long last, I have a project to post. Home improvement has kept me pretty busy and out of the garage. This is a vertical wine rack made from pine and cedar, with cork lining inside the holes. It is based on a metal rack design I have seen. This was a “learner” project to give me some experience with the techniques needed, and to work out the bugs with my design. It turned out well enough to hang on the wall, at least until I make one out of nicer wood. It taught me a lot of different techniques – router inlay, mitered corners (it has a plywood core and the pine is a box construction), hand planing, french cleats, layout for drilling non 90-degree holes, and some finishing techniques. It is finished with Danish Oil and 3 coats of wipe-on poly.
