Made to hold standard 750 ml wine bottles. Living in Oregon, wine is a staple of the area. The unit is made from “rescued” cedar and surplus floor tiles. The holes were made with a hole saw on the drill press.

The joinery is be bamboo skewer pegs used for barbecuing. Drilled, glued, pounded in, let dry, cut-off, and then sanded down. Seems sturdy( I have used it before too) and is also metal free.

The size is just over 14” long, about 8 inches tall and 7 deep.

It has a slight torching and then just enough clear satin spray over that to keep the torching from migrating around.

The no-scratch feet are just the $ Tree self adhesive felt disks.

As always took longer than expected and learned a few things along the way too. The spindle sander really works well for cleaning up the inside of the holes.
To help me get things straight; I use a piece of glass from an old micro-wave door as a stand for glue-ups.

Design again was from T & E designs. AS usual comments and suggestions always welcome.

nice little wine rack, and the tiles will e useful to set the opened bottles on … Personally I don’t care for the burnt wood, but that’s just me, and I see that you use it in allot of projects.
I have used the skewer pins and am surprised how strong a joint that is … Keep up the great work.

Bamboo pegs joinery sounds interesting. I thought about doing something similar with wooden dowels, but never have. Are the pegs round? Or square?
