Wine Rack

Just finished a wine rack for my wife. She enjoys the Korbel bubbly only. I designed the rack for one size bottle only.

Capacity: 7 shelves at 8 bottles per shelf =>56 bottles

Each shelf bottle space has been routed to hold a 4" diameter bottle. Design included a depth that was shorter than the bottle to help facilitate bottle removal.

Dimensions: 11-3/8 (depth) x 37 (height) x 38 (width)
Finish: Watco Danish Oil Natural
Wood - Top: local walnut from downtown Portland, Or
Wood - Rest: local English Oak from Salem, Or.

Joints: Half-lap between the 1/2" thick center verticals and the 3/4" thick shelves. This half-lap joint is a self squaring joint that helped during assembly and glue up to keep the rack square.

Leg and shelf joint is a groove (leg) and tongue (shelf) with a 1/4" diameter peg to secure the joint. I probably should have used a sliding dovetail, but I didn't think of it during the design.

Let me know if you have any questions about the wine rack.

Very nice work, Eric! And there's a lot of tedious detail on all those joints - good job.

Thank-you! Jigs make the joints much easier to make and consistent to fit. Jointing and planing the lumber to exact dimensions is an absolute requirement!!! The moisture content also makes a big difference. I had the boards in my shop for months getting acclimated. After planing and jointing I let them sit for two (2) months with stickers before I cut the joints. I have used the joint in the past without these steps and found the joints very difficult to assemble. The nice feature about this joint is that very little glue is required because the joint is a very tight mechanical fit.

I like it. A bottle a week, plus four extras for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Eve! Expensive shopping the next day, though.
