Made using recycled timber, this rack is easy to build and gives you a great excuse to stock up on fine wines!
Gather your supplies
• 550 x 130 x 50mm recycled timber block
• 50mm pan head screws
You'll also need
• Measuring tape
• 120mm-wide (approx) scrap timber (2)
• Cordless drill
• 32mm spade bit
• 6mm drill bit
• Wall mates and masonry wall plugs (if necessary)
Along centre of recycled timber block, measure and draw marks for 4 holes. Make first hole 110mm from 1 end then space rest of the holes 110mm apart.
Each hole needs to be drilled on an angle to hold a bottle. First, make a drilling guide by marking 1 piece of the scrap timber with 7 degree angle at one end using a protractor and cutting. Place recycled timber block on second scrap piece so spade bit doesn't blow out the back. Sit guide scrap of timber on edge on recycled timber block. Place spade bit on a mark made in Step 1 and tilt drill so bit is in line with angled edge of guide scrap of timber. Drill hole, making sure drill stays on this angle. Repeat for all holes.
To create tabs on racks for hanging, mark out a rebate 35mm wide and 100mm long on both ends of block. Use handsaw to cut out rebates. Drill a 6mm hole through centre of each tab.
Mount rack on wall using pan head screws. If fixing to plasterboard, try to locate timber studs in wall and screw directly to them, otherwise use a plasterboard fixing such as a wall mate. Use masonry wall plugs to go into brick walls.
