Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #36: Wine & Glasses Rack Finalized and Hung

03-19-2015 03:29 PM by technoslick | 4 comments »

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 waln...

Prototype Wine and Glasses Rack - Final Prototype Configuration - (less finish)

01-11-2015 01:03 AM by technoslick | 2 comments »

(I posted the early build of this under Projects, several days ago.) Yesterday I finished the construction. To keep the top glasses from falling off the shelf on their own I added three 3” lengths of dowel cut to a 5 degree back slant. The space between the closest distance between the dowels and the shelf is adequate to make it impossible for the glasses to fall off the shelf without making it difficult to get the glasses off. In the production runs holes will be drilled at 5 de...

2 Board Modular Bookshelf - Woodworking Basics

06-29-2013 10:51 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 4 comments »

This modular bookshelf is a great project for beginning woodworkers and you veteran woodworkers as well. Requiring only 2 boards to build and a limited amount of tools, this project can be made in a day or a weekend. the design can be modified by building more cubes or changing the orientation of the unit itself. Add some color and it makes a great display and shelving unit for a kids room. Give it a try.

Building a wall-mounted wine-glass rack #5: Mounting and loading with fine crystal

10-22-2012 05:02 PM by Brad | 5 comments »

In my last post, the rack was assembled, finished and drying in my workshop. After a busy workweek, I finally had the time to put up rack and start enjoy its space-liberating bounty. MountingThis sucker is heavy. And the last thing I want is to wake up to the sound of breaking glass late one night. To prevent this, I used a stud finder to mark where I would screw through the shelf support rail directly into the studs. I chose 4” screws to affix the rack. By screwing the support r...

Extra Kitchen Cabinets #1: Kitchen Cabinets for Kitchen Addition

10-09-2012 12:16 AM by MichaelAgate | 10 comments »

Hi Everyone. Matthew and I built a couple of wine racks and thought we would share in a blog. First off, we built an addition on to our kitchen about a year and a half ago. We are now getting around to putting in the extra cabinets needed. We needed to create a couple of filler cabinets about 7” wide. Wine racks is what we came up with. Though we consume alcohol as often as a vegetarians eat meat (Well, perhaps a little more) once filled with bottles of wine, they should look ok. ...

Building a wall-mounted wine-glass rack #3: Joinery

10-08-2012 02:35 AM by Brad | 4 comments »

As I mentioned before, building two prototypes helped me work out the joinery details on this project. I chose dovetails for the end support brackets. The rear bottom edge of the shelf rests on a 1” x 4” as detailed in End-bracket rail joinery detail above. To secure the rail, I used half lap joints into the backs of the end support brackets. My SB #71 router plane served well to flatten the bottom of each surface to a consistent depth. I also cut a rabbet at the...

Building a wall-mounted wine-glass rack #2: Two prototypes serve as a design roadmap

09-30-2012 03:23 PM by Brad | 4 comments »

In the last post I talked about why we needed a new wine-glass rack. I also discussed many of the questions I had about the design and joinery. Building two prototypes helped me answer all these questions. I was able to experiment with slat rabbet depths and spacing to determine the optimal specifications. Moreover, I was able to try out various joinery options to flesh out the best way to put the rack together. The prototypes also provided fertile ground to experiment on finishing deta...

Building a wall-mounted wine-glass rack #1: Beginning with the end in mind.

09-23-2012 06:30 PM by Brad | 1 comment »

My lady deserves better. At least that’s what I told myself when I rationalized what was taking me so long to tackle something as straightforward as a wine-glass rack. First it was, “I want more practice dovetailing,” then it was “I need to come up with a cooler design,” and then…oh well you know the lemming march of excuses. We had outgrown our little prefab rack. Eight glasses just don’t cut it in this wine-drinking household. And the vibration from our furnace had a bad ...

Oak Bar Cabinet (my wife's xmas present) Making good on my mistake.

12-06-2011 11:36 PM by Don W | 22 comments »

My wife wanted a Bar cabinet similar to one in her Pottery Barn Catalog. She typically finds something she wants and we “fix” the design. I have to admit, she is better at the implementation of a design than I am. This one was pretty close to what she wanted though, or so we thought. Here is the original Picture as seen in the catalog. So the first thing I did was take inventory on my wood supply. After showing some samples of what wood I had avai...
