This was for a client who wanted some “re-purposed” furniture. The idea started with an antique drying rack I came upon. I built a box (quarter-sawn walnut veneer) for the rack to mount on, to hide the electrical, and to house a cleat for wall-mounting. I then cut the bottoms off the wine bottles, ran the electrical, and presto-change!
