My co-employee asked me to make him a wine rack that is made of wood and in dark brown color, a perfect project for my new homemade bandsaw. I used a local mahogany wood and finished 3 layers of sanding sealer after the stain and topped with 2 layers of gloss lacquer varnish and a final coat of semi-flat lacquer varnish.

Very nice, Armand. I think you used you mortise and tenon jig also. The joints look very clean.

Looks great! Up until the last picture I would have sworn the project was a violet/purple color.

Thanks Buddies. Ed, yes mortise and tenon joineries were used on this project.

Just to add:
1. The trays are inclined 4 degrees to keep the corks wet inside the bottles even if they are half emptied.
2. The cove moulding profile for the tray was DIYed on my table saw.
3. I used wood paste filler slightly thinned with paint thinner and added oil based tinting color to even out the surface while achieving the desired base color too. After wiping off the excess filler, I sprayed stain to even out the color.
4. Unthinned lacquer sanding sealer followed as the first coat.
5. With sanding in between coats.
