Do you have to be able to see the cork all the time? If not, cut 4 thin pieces the same width (the full width) and length of the front rails and glue them onto the fronts of each rail. This will act as a stop to keep the bottles from sliding forward. It doesn’t HAVE to be the full width, but it will look less “added-on” if it is.


Rout a half-round groove about 1/4” wide along the rails, right through U-shaped cutouts, and glue in a dowel to act as a stop. Or rout a rabbet along the top edge and use a stop piece with a square cross section. Or just slap the stop right on the surface of the rail without letting it in.


Deepen all the rear cradles to reduce the angle (last resort).
