Before starting the actual construction project, we recommend you to plan everything, as to save money and to keep the costs under control. Adjust the size and the design of the wine rack to suit your needs. In addition, we recommend you to invest in high-quality materials, such as pine, redwood or cedar, as they have a nice finish and are highly durable, especially in a humid environment.
If you don’t have a rich expertise in woodworking field, you should ask a friend to give you a hand with the project.

Building a wine cabinet
First of all, you need to build the sides of the wine rack. Use 2×2 lumber for the legs and 1×12 lumber for the panels. Take accurate measurements and adjust the size of the components to fit the dimensions in the diagram. Drill pocket holes along the side edges and fit the panel to the legs, as described in the diagram. Add glue to the joints and make sure the edges are perfectly flush.
Add 1×4 trims to the side panels in order to enhance the look of the project. Drill pilot holes at both ends and secure them to the legs using 1 1/4″ screws. In addition add glue to the joints and insert a few brad nails into the side panels.
Next, lock the sides of the wine rack together by fitting the bottom supports. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the 1×4 supports and secure them to the legs by using 1 1/4′ screws. Make sure the sides are plumb and the corners perfectly square. Add glue to the joints and remove the excess with a damp cloth.
Build the shelves out of 3/4″ plywood and smooth the edges before drill pocket holes along the side edges. Fit the shelves to the structure and secure them to the sides by using 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints and make sure the corners are square.
Build the back out of 3/4″ plywood and drill pocket holes along the sides. Fit the piece of plywood to the back of the cabinet and lock it to the legs by using 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints and remove the residues with a damp cloth.
Build the partitions for the wine rack using 1/4″ plywood. Cut the components at the right size and make the 1/4″ wide notches with great care before assembling them together.
Fit the partitions to the bottom opening and make sure there are no gaps. Insert a few brad nails to secure the partitions to the structure.
Build the frame of the drawer out of 1×4 lumber and the front face out of 1×6 lumber. Lock the components together by using 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints and make sure the corners are square. Smooth the edges and remove the excess with a damp cloth.
Attach the 1/4″ plywood bottom to the drawer as in the diagram. Align the edges with great care and insert brad nails to lock it into place properly. Add glue to the joints to enhance the bond of the components. Wax the bottom thoroughly and fit a handle to the front face for a professional result.
Build the top of the wine cabinet out of 3/4″ plywood and place it on a level surface. Center the cabinet to the components and insert a few 1 1/$” screws through the trims and through the legs. Add glue to the joints and remove the excess material with a damp cloth.
Last but not least, we recommend you to take care of the finishing touches. Fit the drawer to the top opening and make sure it slides easily. Fill the holes with wood filler and let it to dry out for several hours. Afterwards, smooth the wooden surface with fine-grit sandpaper and vacuum the residues.
