Wine bottle collectors may dedicate a whole room to store up their collections but how will we that buy a few bottles for a party or domestic use? Let us see how we can have our DIY wine racks done at our homes. The following methods take little space and are done with easy to get materials.

Take a single wooden plank and drill holes in it to place the bottle necks in them. You will require pencil, measuring tape and sandpaper. Cut the wooden plank to the measurement you need. Leave space between the holes for the bottles to stand. Smooth away rough edges and pencil marks and paint the plank with the preferred color and paint. You may have your shelf on pelican brackets or L brackets.

You may opt for the cheaper materials or the more expensive ones when you shop according to your requirement. Cut the pipes to 18 feet long tubes. Cut the rope in half, stand the pipe sections on a table. Use the rope to bind the tubes leaving 3 inches from the edges of the tubes, pull tight to fit and create loops between the turnbuckle eyes and fix the cable clamps. Chop the nimiety rope and cover and fasten the excess rope. Secure the turnbuckles and make it fit right. Do the same on the other side of the tubes leaving 3” edge from the ends of the tubes. You may fix a glass top or a wooden top and use it as a table cum rack.

Each vertical piece has two lengthwise pieces with many abridged parallel pieces placed up and down on every side that resembles a ladder.

8. The Standard Six-bottle Wine Rack:
This wine rack is very easy to construct and is not time consuming at all. You can have this compact rack in your dining room itself or you may put it above your fridge. Take two pieces of plywood of 15”x10.5”, two 1” hinges, a screwdriver, neon string of about 10 inches, a drill with a 3-1/5” drill bit and a 1/16” drill bit and 150-grit sandpaper. With a ruler and a pencil measure and target the place where the circle cut would go on the wood. The cut outs are one to one and a half inches from the sides and one inch on the length wise. The circles are 1” away from each other. Use a power drill and make six circular holes into the plywood drilling out 12 holes altogether. Smooth out the edges with the sandpaper after using the drill on the wood. Decide where the hinges will go on the rack. Take measurement to the middle of the hole and fix one side of the hinge and align the second piece and fix the other side of the hinge securely. Do likewise on the next side. Arrange the wine rack in an A frame.
