DIY Wine Riddling Rack
I have always loved Pottery Barn's Wine Riddling Rack, but seeing as I am not much of a wine drinker and their price was outrageous...I built my own and gave it away!!!! Although, now I want two for myself!! Lol!!
It doesn't take much to build in terms of wood supplies...you only need a few 2x6s, 1x4s, and 1x3s to create this beauty along with some tools!! You can find the complete list on my blog below!! Start by cutting your 2x6s to length...which is 56"! After that you have to mark where you want your holes to be drilled...we lined them all up and clamped them to mark where we wanted them.
Next we drilled the holes...I used a drill press and it was a somewhat complicated process, you can read all about in the post if you would like on my blog!! Lol!! You will need a 2 1/2" hole saw for this part and it will be a back and forth between the drill press and hand drill!! The hole saws are not thick enough to cut through 2x wood on a 45 degree angle...so there is also some chiseling involved!!
It was pretty smooth sailing once we finally got through the holes being drilled!! I then used my KregJig to plank the boards together!!
Once they were glued and screwed together, the frame has to be made around the planked 2x6s! I beveled the edges of the 1x4s to make them look just like Pottery Barn's version and glued and stapled it on!
I went ahead and sanded and stained mine at this point...you can wait until the end...I just figured it would be easier but I am not sure it really matters!! LoL!! I then had to place all the wood strips along the back that keep the bottles from falling out!! This is where you will use the 1x3s! I sanded and stained them on their fronts before I glued and screwed them all along the back (since the front of the wine rack was already stained). Finding just the right spot to place the boards was a little tricky as well and I had to have my hubby's help, the board has to be placed just right to where the bottle has enough room to fit through without having too much room to where it can lean out and fall!!
After getting all the 1x3s attached to the back all you have to do is pick a wall hanger and get this baby hung on the wall!! Woohoo!! Note: This is for decorative purposes and should only hold up to ten full bottles at any time...it can be filled with empty bottles though!!
The full post is available on my blog below, it goes into better detail and may answer any questions you have... but if not feel free to ask below!! Thanks for reading!! Have a great day!!!
