I had an order for a wine rack and I was scared. This project clearly called for mortise and tenon joinery. Something I have never done. I almost gave up but after several trial and error attempts I was comfortable enough to give it a try. I did the top and bottom racks by cutting the circles first then cut in half with my table saw. I did the ends by using some metal I found and recessed it into the wood by cutting slots with a dremel and a router attachment. Tenons I did by using my table saw and the mortise slots with a router table. Lots of practice too as their are 16 of these joints in this project. I based this project on one I found on here lumberjocks.com/projects/20660 with some changes. Stained with red oak and semi gloss polyurethane. I was really proud of the mortise and tenon job. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/54690
