I built this wine rack for my Brother in-law and his Wife for Christmas. I saw a similar design in a Pottery Barn magazine or something. This is made out of two oak planks which I tapered on both ends. I then connected them with vertical planks to make an “H” design. The bottle holders were the fun part. I was walking through Menards trying to figure out what would give me that rustic/pottery barn look and came across some U-bolts for a few bucks each. They were perfect! I stained this with dark oak and rounded over the edges with a 1/4” round over bit. This turned out to be my best homemade Christmas project this year.

Looks fantastic!

I do see ONE problem though, not enough wine bottles!!! Unless of course, they were already “uncorked”!!! Lol.

Really good execution. The taper makes the design look top end.

Very creative – It adds a definite homey feel to a space.

I do believe you solved my “I just made a really cool wine rack, now what am I going to use for the mounts???” problem.
