This wine rack I cant claim design rights over. My Brother in law in the Philippines sent me a picture of something similar and politely asked if I could make him one.
It looked like a bit of fun so over a bottle of wine I drew up some plans of what I thought the measurements where in relation to the picture I had of the rack.
I could tell the angles where a little tricky and I,d need to carefully set it out so as I could get the middle inner bottle out without fouling on the top bottles neck.

I had some old cedar which i had acquired free from the local internet market place, the trouble was that it was painted brown.
I planed the brown paint off and had a few reasonable pieces to work with.

With wine bottles and glasses on hand, I built the rack and carefully sized my holes to fit the bottles and the glasses at the bottom, I trimmed the holes with a round over trimmer bit along with he edges of the timbers.

To hide some of the reclaimed timber imperfections I did something that id never done before which was to take to the project with a blow torch. I blow torched the whole piece to give it a burnt rustic look. (picture of the blow torching can be seen above) I then gave a light wood dye and two coats of satin rub on poly to give the soft cedar more durability.

It was one of those projects in the end that everybody wants one.
Thanks for reading.

Cheers Dick, yes mate it seems to always feel better having used wood that would normally have become scrap.
