This wine rack is made from a slab taken out of a Douglas Fir on our property that was rotting from the inside out. I used a hole saw to start the circle cuts, and then went to a Forstner bit to clean them out. The open center was completed the same way. Very labor intensive, so I’m going to try a 3 5/8 inch self-feed bit the next time. The wine rack is about 15 inches high by 18 inches wide by 7 inches deep. This one is going to be a birthday gift for our son (yes, he’s over 21). The next one I try is going to be made from a cankered branch on a Ponderosa Pine.

Nice used of some timber that could have been fire wood. Certainly has the rustic look. Great work.

Very cool! Great idea. I have a slab of oak that decided not to be what I had planned (by splitting half way through the project). Thank you for the inspiration. I’m going to try to put a little twist on it though. Nice post.

-- Cheers and God Bless

Definitely a different twist…..on the usual drab looking, run of the mill wine storage units.
Nicely done.
