Do you like to drink wine? If so, then you’re in luck!
In this blog post, we will discuss six different wine rack build projects that you can do at home. These racks are all made from materials that can be found at your local hardware store, and they are all relatively easy to build. So, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned DIYer, there’s something for everyone here!
Pete shows us how to build a simple wine rack that will hold six to eight wine bottles and six large wine glasses. A wine rack is a simple way to add style to your kitchen or dining room while increasing the efficiency of the space.
To start, cut all of your boards to length. A miter saw is the easiest way to do this, but you can also use a circular saw or a handsaw. You should end up with eleven total boards. Next, clean up any rough edges with the orbital sander, then use a jigsaw to create the rounded corners that will give your wine rack that professional look.
After you’ve created the rounded corners, it’s time to measure and trace the slots for the wine glasses. Once you’ve measured and drawn all of your lines, use a drill and a jigsaw to make all six of the notches.
Now you’re ready to start assembling. Use glue, nails or screws, and pre-drilled jig holes to ensure a neat, professional-looking fit.
After a final sanding, the next step is to stain and add a clear protective finish to your project. If you are looking to save time, apply a one step, easy to use product like Minwax Polyshades, in the color of your choice, following the label instructions. Polyshades is a stain and polyurethane in one, so you won’t have to do two separate steps of applying a stain and then a clear protective finish on top.
Once PolyShades has fully dried, the next step is to attach the wine rack to the wall. To do this, drill holes in the back of the wine rack, find the studs in your wall, then attach the wine rack to the studs using three-inch wood screws.
The last and most important step is to fill up your wine rack and enjoy it! This DIY wine rack will be a useful, beautiful conversation piece for years to come, and you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you built it yourself.

Where Should I Place My Wine Rack In My House?
This is a question that many people ask when they are trying to figure out the best way to store their wine collection. There are a few things that you need to take into consideration when you are placing your wine rack in your home. The first thing that you need to think about is the sunlight. You do not want your wine to be in direct sunlight, as this can cause the wine to spoil. You also need to make sure that the temperature in the room is not too hot or too cold, as this can also affect the quality of your wine. The best place for your wine rack is in a cool, dark place such as a basement or a closet.
Another thing to consider when you are placing your wine rack is the humidity. You want to make sure that the room is not too humid, as this can cause the cork to dry out and allow air to enter the bottle, which will spoil the wine. The ideal humidity level for a wine cellar is between 50-70%.
One last thing to consider when you are placing your wine rack is the vibration. You do not want your wine to be in an area where there is a lot of movement, as this can cause the wine to become agitated and spoil. The best place for your wine rack is on a solid surface such as a table or countertop.
Now that you know where to place your wine rack, you can start enjoying your wine collection! Cheers!

Should You Store Wine On Its Side?
Yes, you should store wine on its side. This is because when wine is stored on its side, the cork stays moist. If the cork dries out, it can shrink and allow oxygen to enter the bottle, which will spoil the wine. Also, storing wine on its side keeps the sediment in the bottle from settling at the bottom, which can make the wine taste bitter. So, if you want to keep your wine fresh and tasting its best, be sure to store it on its side.

Can You Put A Wine Rack On Top Of A Fridge?
Yes, you can put a wine rack on top of a fridge. There are a few things to keep in mind, though. Make sure the wine rack is stable and won’t tip over. Also, make sure the wine rack is the right size for your fridge. If it’s too big or too small, it won’t look good.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you’ll need to access the wine rack from the top. This means that you’ll need to be able to reach it. If it’s too high up, you won’t be able to get to the wine.
