Trying to make a contemporary wine rack that when finished could be reassembled after being shipped halfway across the country for a Christmas present was a neat challenge. After a conversation with my brother-in-law about what he would like as a gift for him and his wife, I sat down and designed this piece so it would only need 24 screws to assemble after unwrapping. The stackable boxes fit together using feet that fit into grooves and I finished them in a way that they can use one of the boxes on a counter or table as a centerpiece if they have a party and want to show off the wines.
This 18 bottle wine rack measures 27” wide by 30” tall and 10” deep, and is made of clean pine with a red mahogany stain and finished with several coats of clear shellac. The final weight is 40 pounds, so it’s nice and sturdy.
The best part is gift giving for them will be easy in the future – I can just make them another box to add to the rack.
