This wine rack was designed for a friend who commissioned the project.
Wood Types: Cherry and Mahogany dowels for the exposed pegged joints
Finish: Zinsser Amber Shellac, Citrus-Shield Paste Wax
Height: 27” – Width: 20” – Depth: 12”
Designed to hold 12 wine/champagne bottles and 12 wine glasses. Each bottle is held by a combination of 2 arches; the arch that holds the neck of the bottle is holding the bottom of the bottles on the shelf below; except for the top shelf, the bottom of the bottle is held by the arch that leads to the wine glass rails.
The downward arch is the Flying Arch of the piece. It supports the horizontal load of the 3 other arches which hold the vertical load (the bottles).
To fit the arches together, I made half-lap joints using router freehand with a 3/8” bit. The neck brace for the bottles are joined with the arches with a blind dovetail.
All the wood was purchased from House of Hardwood in Los Angeles
