A few of the wall-hanging wine racks I’ve made in the last few weeks. The first is East Indian Rosewood and cherry, the second is walnut and cherry, and the third is poplar and cherry (and my first attempt at relief carving).

Welcome to LJ’s Outstanding! Like the use of the open knot back board and your carving certainly displays your artistic brain. Beautiful.

While I appreciate the work that went into the carving, my favourite one is the first one. Very elegant.

Those look great! Did you do anything to prevent them from sliding off in either direction?
I was thinking of a little recess on each shelf to cradle bottle a bit more.
Thanks again for sharing, I really like the idea!

@nittanylion – there are pegs (brass or aluminum) along the front of the shelf, but nothing on the ends; they really don’t slide. I’ve used a pair of Rockler Z-Clips on the back to provide stable hanging, so they won’t tip.

I thought about doing a recess on the shelf – like one would cut a cove moulding on the TS. Wouldn’t have to be much of one, and would like to stop it short of the ends. Maybe best hand-cut.

I looks really nice! I keep seeing wine racks and I want to build one but every time I’m about to I see another design that’s great too. Yours is great because it shows off more of the beautiful wood along with the many great wines out there.

I’ve seen another LJ’s post with this same plan; if you’re interested, the original came from Lowe's Creative Ideas
