I made 3 wine racks for the same client as the chess boards and again made them however I wanted. What I have posted is my standard wine rack. The only difference in any of mine is that lumber used to acheive color combos but I was restricted to walnut and oak so like the cutting boards I tried to be creative with the lumber placement. These are 6 1/4” wide, 3 1/2” deep and 11 1/2” high. I try to keep at least a 3/4” center not especially for structural means but pleasing to the eye.
After I glue up over night, one way or another I square one side either on the table saw or sanding belt then get the second side parallel to the first and then everything else is band saw work.
I cut the bottom off for a square flat surface then lay out the cuts with a compass. Each wine rack provides 5 nice hunks of theoretical scrap. nope in my shop tho – some become push blocks for the table saw and most becaome a box. Next week I’ll post some of them. They’re a real pain to make but I sell then as quick as I can make ‘em. Of course sell is a misnomer because counting labor and materials I’ve probably got $15 or $20 in each one but they make great give aways

Again, Thanks for looking and don’t forget to criticize, ‘cause I love it

Dick,
These are impressive, well made with exacting detail. By that, I’m referring to the bottle placement holes, perfectly round as if drilled with a hole saw and I’m assuming these are some of the band saw work you mention. Great work, perfectly made.

Also, glad your business is so bountiful, nice to reap the rewards of your labor.

Thank you for noticing. Yes all of the cuts on them are done on the band saw

Thanks jeff, the compact size allows storage for 5 bottles and not too much counter space

Nice bandsaw work, Dick! I would’ve guessed (and used) a hole saw or a coping saw, but I can’t argue with your results.

Dave, it never occurred to me to use anything but the band saw. I do so much band saw work that I buy blades by the dozen, get one free that way
