American cherry and walnut wine rack, built to hold 8 bottles, finished with a satin wipe on poly and wax. I built this for my girlfriend last Valentine’s day. It’s in my kitchen now since she moved in with me. I plan to move it when I get the walls done in my dining room. It was quite the project being that I had no shop to speak of at the time so I built it in my back yard and finished it in my basement. The fifth picture is a maple and purpleheart version that I built for my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas 2011.

Very cool! Did you build this from a plans or designed it yourself. I am always looking for idea for wine stand as wine is my other hobby but never before wood working.

I had to zoom the pix to see how this one worked ! Low on capacity but high on style and function. Obviously for the discriminating drinker !

Thanks guys. A buddy and I designed these a few years ago. We made two at the same time out of maple and padauk if I remember correctly, very similar to the maple and purpleheart version pictured. He still has the one, and I gave my original away when my girlfriend moved in and brought the much fancier one with her.
