. Hi,

This is my first year in winemaking and after I bottled all my wine I was left with 64 bottles, then I decided to purchase a wine rack, unfortunately the prices were way too high than I decided to make it myself after surfing the web to check some designs I calculated the space where I will place the wine rack, and made a 2D design, it will be a wine rack 8 by 17 which can hold 136 bottles. When I made the design I find out at what length and size of wood that I need, I went and purchased it. First I made the outer box then I marked the inner sections then I made a jig to make the inner sections, which really speed up the process, after finishing all tbe inner sections all of them slide in and fixed with a nail from top and bottom sides when it completed I finished tbe wine rack by covering the back side with an OSB board.I really like the final outcome

Very nice work! How much do you have in it in wood? I like the design, especially the way the racks are set back in the frame and do not come out to the end. You saved a lot of wood that would have contributed nothing to the rack by not bringing the portion that holds the bottles out to the end of the framework.

Good job!

Impressive DIY project! 🍷 It's inspiring to see someone take initiative like that. Cheers to many more wine-filled years ahead! - Ahmad
