This diy step by step diy project is about how to build a wine shelf with glass rack. This project is about building a rustic rack for two wine bottles that also features a glass support. I managed to build this wine shelf for under 10 dollars. This also makes for an unique conversation piece that will brighten up the look of your kitchen, or it can be offered as a gift.
You should always plan everything from the very beginning, in order to prevent costly mistakes and to save time. If this is your first project, you should read the instructions with attention. Invest in high quality lumber and plywood, as the components will be exposed to bad weather. Protect the components with appropriate paint or stain.
There are a few tips that you should take into account, if you want to get a professional result. Therefore, take accurate measurements and use professional tools when making the cuts or when drilling pilot holes. Align the components at both ends and add waterproof glue to the joints, if you want to create a rigid structure.

Small wine rack plans
The first step of the project is to build the sides for the small wine rack. Mark the cuts on the 1×4 slats and get the job done with a saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.
Next, you need to assemble the frame of the small wine rack. Drill pilot holes through the 1×2 support and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the sides. Drill pilot holes through the bottom support and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the sides. Make sure the corners are right-angled and align the edges with attention, before inserting the screws.
Build the wine glass support from 1×4 lumber. Mark the cut lines on the slat and get he job done with a saw. Use a chisel to remove the excess material and smooth the notch with sandpaper.
Drill pilot holes through the wine glass rack and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the sides.
Attach the 1×2 strips of wood to the front of the wine shelf. Use 5/8″ nails.
Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper and stain the components. Drill a pilot hole through the top support and insert a 3 1/2″ screws into the stud.
How to build a wine shelf with glass rack
It only took me two hours to build this wine shelf with glass rack. If you like the idea, take a look over the following tutorial to see how I cut the components and assembled everything.
Mark the cut lines on the 1×4 slats for the sides. Use a saw to make the notches and the diagonal cut. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper and remove the excess with a damp cloth.
After cutting one side for the wine rack, you should cut the opposite component, in the same manner described above.
Next, you need to attach the bottom slat to the sides of the rack. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the slat and use a clamp to lock everything together. Check if the corners are square before inserting the 1 1/4″ screws.
Continue the project by attaching the 1×2 support to the top of the wine rack. Drill pilot holes through the support and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the sides of the rack. Add glue to the joints.
Next, you have to build the wine glass rack. Cut a piece of 1×4 lumber at 9 1/2″ and mark the lines for the notches. Make cuts inside the marked area and remove the excess with a chisel. Smooth the edges with attention and remove the excess with a damp cloth.
Drill pilot holes through the wine glass rack before attaching it to the shelf.
Use 1 1/4″ screws to lock the glass rack to the wine shelf. Make sure the edges are flush before inserting the screws. Add glue for a durable bond.
Fit 1×2 strips of wood to the face of the wine rack. Use 5/8″ brad nails and glue to secure the rails to the sides of the wine shelf. Place a wood block between the rails to create equal gaps.
Drill a pilot holes through the center of the top support and insert a screw into the stud of the wall.
This rustic project makes for a great gift for a loved one. You can further customize the wine rack by making it wider or by painting a few letters or a logo.
