« Part 35: DROID X Vehicle Dock to Tripod Mount Conversion Part 36 of Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring series Part 37: Fruit & Veggie Bin »

I finally got around to completing this prototype rack, one I started last fall—been a busy and troublesome winter so far. The wood used in this Wine & Glasses Rack is hemlock, the most commonly used pallet wood in my area. This a design I made up based on some others I have seen on the Web. Being a prototype, it has major and minor flaws, but I’m content with the premise behind the design and will make needed changes in the next build.

The finish is Danish oil, medium walnut color. Wall mount accomplished via French cleat.

Thanks, Lee. I’m glad you liked it. I have to get into some other projects now, but there are plans to revisit the concept and add/make changes that became obvious in the build. I also won’t use hemlock again: not the proper wood for this kind of project. Nonetheless, I’m glad to have had the free wood to prototype with.
