Made of Walnut & Ebony

I made this for my Daughter last Christmas.
It measures 30” tall by 18” wide by 9” deep. It holds six bottles of wine and eight wine glasses.
You have to excuse the set up but I only had empty wine bottles and a garage door to hang it on for the pics to show its functionality.

empties…. ? ah, the best kind. Nice design. Nice wood. How were the edges done? Looks very attractive and a bit more complex then first glance would suggest. ah, just read walnut and ebony…

Thanks for the complements and for you gul, I’m not much for blogging but below is a couple of links to pics that show the main pieces before the final glue up.

You’ll notice that the back support and the piece that holds the wine bottles has a mortise & tenon type joint. Then glued as well as three 2 1/2 inch wood screws for extra strength.

The other pieces were not only glued but also screwed as well. Countersunk and plugged, Made from the same walnut used on this project.

On the back of the support I put on two heavy duty key hole hangers. (when hanging something of this design and weight. Be sure to put the screws/nails into a stud.)

I Hope this helps.

To answer your questions JorgeG, Yes and Yes. I first used a router which did not work as well as I was wanted. So I did the rest by hand. I did these in pieces then glued them together. The ebony on the front is covering the glue lines.
This was my first wine/wineglass rack. A learning project to say the least.
