I saw a fellow LJ FuzzyDove post his wall mount wine rack http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26581 and thought it would be great for my sister-in-law and her husband. I changed very little on his original design: I went with two less shelves to make it a little spaced out (and cheaper to fill). I also used a french cleat to mount it to the wall. My brother in law doesn’t do much work with tools, and I thought it would be easier to install one straight board than anything else. The picture with a couple of bottles sitting on it was with only 1 coat of Ebony polyshades. The other picture shows two coats and it’s final color. Construction is entirely out of local Arkansas Red Oak joined with biscuits and titebond. This was my first project using my jointer, planer, biscuit joiner, and my new router table insert on my table saw. It was a learning project, but I think it made a good Christmas present except they announced she was pregnant 10 minutes before I gave her the wine rack and two bottles of wine to put on it.
