Here's the wine rack. I think I'm (kinda) done building. Now I have to take it apart, sand everything and then stain.

Mark the rack looks awesome. Are you going to put a back on it? I'm just thinking it may need some cross braces to keep it from racking from one side to the other.

Very nice work, Mark. Is that pine?

I'm probably not going to put a back on it, everything is screwed together and then screwed into the wall. And yes, it is pine. I would have loved to build it out of something else but, as I've well surpassed my budget on building the room, so I settled for pine. Once I sand everything and stain it'll be hard to tell.....hopefully 😃

Mark, great idea fastening it to the wall. I used the exact same material to build mine and I think using anything else would be over kill on the budget. Here's several that I built when I first built my wine cellar. Since then I have added many more racks inside and outside of the cellar.

Very nice! I wish I had more space, but I'm doing what I can. Although.... ever since a good friend of mine introduced me to wine making, I've found more places to cram stuff that I knew I had!!..haha It's really amazing how much stuff you can collect in a short amount of time.....

Nice rack! Turned out great. They have some stains out these days that by the time your done with it you would never know its not an expensive piece of hardwood.

Time to wash some bottles and get bottling. But first, I have to run some things down to Pitt that the boy forgot when he was home this weekend.

Tomorrow, the corporate guy comes in from France and I'll have to take him and the boss out for a swanky dinner downtown. Nothing better than having dinner with both of your bosses.... yes, sir, nothing better..........


Rats.....
