Wine Rack Installed

Here’s the wine rack installed.  I used Daly’s Profin again for the finish, sanding in the first coat with 400 grit paper and then adding in two additional coats.  Wine bottles sit in cut out that I used a rasp to shape.  Shelves are mounted in dados with glue and screws. Wood is Paduk.

This is a project that I’ll remember for a looong time.  There is orange saw dust everywhere .. and I mean everywhere.  I’ll be finding it for a long time.

  1. That's very classy! Nice job, Marilyn.

  2. I've never seen a wine rack like it, it looks great!I know what you mean about orange sawdust. I was working with some blood wood a while ago and I had red sawdust covering everything.

  3. Thanks! Ya'll! I'll let the design team you guys approve. :o)

    I LOVE this design and will steal it with glee. I have the perfect spot in my dining room. I also have the perfect piece of Walnut too. Maybe I missed it in your previous post but what is the material in the cut outs? Looks metallic

  6. It's all made of paduk. I used a hole saw to cut through the 3/4" shelf and then sawed out the shape of a wine bottle and removed the waste. So there an open hole in the shelf that the bottle sits down in. This post shows it better than I can explain -> http://sheworkswood.blogspot.com/2012/03/wine-rack-shelf-shaping-and-glue-up.html

  7. That space needed sumin'. Thanks! :o)

  8. Marilyn,Padauk is one of my favourite exotic woods. I turned a pen using padauk a number of years ago and it has taken on a beautiful patina and is now a deep, rich red.I like the idea behind the design. I'd like to experiment with it and see how far I can get the wine bottle to sit BELOW the shelf. Wine bottles are the same diameter for the most part, aren't they?Chris

  9. I thought about having it sit below the shelf as well. That would look pretty cool. We have a wine cabinet in the house and the slats are 2 1/4" apart. I decided to go with that width because I discovered that wine bottles vary in size slightly and I wanted the bottle to sit similar to one another. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    I'll bet if you moved the flowers off the top shelf it would become the cat's new favorite perch.Very nice indeed

  11. LOL! I bet you're right!!
