wine rack free plans: how to make a
Wine Rack
Basic Description Since most wine gets better with age, wine enthusiasts need a method to store their bottles. Below you will find a free plan for a remarkably simple wall-mounted bottle storage rack that attractively displays your collection. We describe several layouts to maximize the use of available wall space. The design employs efficient use of materials; you won't believe that you can securely hold so many bottles with so little wood.

Tools table saw, bandsaw or jigsaw or scrollsaw, drum sander or oscillating spindle sander (if you plan to surface rough boards you will also need a jointer and surface planer). A complete tool list is provided below.
Cost The plan itself is free! Estimated cost of materials: $7
Time 3 hours
