If you consider yourself an at-home sommelier, this DIY project is the perfect way to showcase your favorite vintages in style. Learn how to build your own wall-mounted wine rack. What You'll Need Materials Birch plywood, 2 feet by 2 feet by 3/4 inch 6 dowel rods, 48 inches by 1 inch Wood glue Drill and 1-inch bit Jig saw Orbital sander Chop saw Ruler Pencil String 75 lb. 2-hole D ring hanger Monkey hooks Instructions Outline the arch shape for your wine rack: To do this, tie a pencil to a 15-inch length of string and anchor the end of the string at 12 inches from the pencil at the center of your piece of plywood. Holding the pencil straight up and down, trace an arch shape across the top of the plywood. Using the jigsaw, cut along the pencil line to create the arch shape for your wine rack. Using the orbital sander, sand the sides and edges of the plywood smooth. Measure and mark the places for your wood dowels: For a 2-by-2 foot piece of plywood, you will begin the holes 1 1/2 inches from the bottom edge of the plywood and mark 3 1/4 inches in from the sides; the holes will need to be 2 1/2 inches from center to center. Therefore, begin at 3 1/4 inches from the left and place a mark every 2 1/2 inches across the bottom of the plywood 1 1/2 inches from bottom edge. Repeat this with the second, third, and fourth rows; each row will need to be at least 5 inches from the center of row beneath it. Once the holes are marked, use the drill with 1-inch bit to drill holes into the plywood for the dowels. Mark and cut the dowels into 8-inch long segments with the chop saw. Use wood glue to secure the dowels in the plywood holes; leave overnight to dry fully. Before mounting, screw on two D-ring hangers. Mount to the wall with 75-plus pound monkey hooks, mollies, or place screws directly into the studs. For assembly, add bottles with the tops facing outward and labels up onto your wine rack.
