    How did you hang it?

      Although I did not make this item, I think they may have used a keyhole method for hanging. There are keyhole mounts you can purchase and then use a router to recess the mount or you can use a keyhole attachment on a router.

      i just cut them out with a jigsaw and then used my router to round them out and recess them a bit to hold the glass

    Hi Lian.....How much space did you leave so you glasses could easily get in and out? Less then an inch, or more? I'm also wondering the width of the slots....1/2" or more? If it was no bother, do you think you might be able to take a tape to it and measure. thanks bunches, Debbie

    Are the bottles sitting on the glass bottoms?

      As they say in the brief description you need to make bottom for the bottles to sit on

    Love this. Can you tell me what you used to hang the wine rack on the wall? What type of heavy duty hangers did you use? Thanks

      Although I have not built this yet myself, based on the approximate size, weight of 8 - 10 bottles (full), I would drill pilot holes in the upper slat on the back and anchor it to the wall with screws. You'll want to be sure and hit wall studs as wall anchors may not support the weight, and make a bigger hole in the wallboard. Make sure to use long enough screws to get one inch or more into the wall studs. Probably 2" to 2 1/2" long screws with a wood thread should do.

    That is one beautiful wine rack! I also love that you made it possible to hang the glasses too. I want to make one but I don't trust my building skills enough to store bottles of wine on top of it! So lovely though! http://www.wjgmercentile.com/dept-45160

    This is sooo cool! I know what what my daughter is getting for Christmas!)))

    Your build instructions were extremely simple and very clear. Good job there!

    I definitely am going to do this. May have to add spacers for the wine bottle shelf, depending on the pallet. Thank you for explaining the wine glass rack. Funny and informative. Thank you for sharing.
