Project Overview

Here’s a great way to store your wine collection and put it out on display. This sleek wine rack is easy to make and makes a pretty good design feature as well. Continue to step-by-step instructions

Step by Step Instructions

1 Have the form ply pre-cut at Bunnings
2 Measure and mark the corners of the form ply
3 Cut out the supports
4 Cut a mitre edge on the base
5 Measure and mark for the holes for the bottles
6 Cut out the holes
7 Join the base to the face
8 Attach the triangle supports
9 Secure the rack
10 Finish off the wine rack
11 Cheers to a job well done
  • Step 1. Have the form ply pre-cut at Bunnings

    To make this project easier we’ve had our ply pre-cut at Bunnings. Out cultist is: 
    1800mm x 1200mm x 17mm form ply cut into - 
    290mm x 435mm for the face 
    200mm x 290mm for the base
  • Step 2. Measure and mark the corners of the form ply

    You will need two triangular shaped supports for between the base and the face of the wine rack. These will be cut from the form ply. Our two supports measured 150mm x 85mm x 150mm.
  • Step 3. Cut out the supports

    Use the drop saw to cut the timber supports for the wine rack.

  • Step 4. Cut a mitre edge on the base

    While the saw is out, cut a 30-degree mitre near the edge of what will be the front face of the wine rack, so that when it attaches to the base it sits on an angle.

  • Step 5. Measure and mark for the holes for the bottles

    You can make as many holes for the wine bottles as you like. We made six. To do this, on the face, measure up 120mm, and then in 100mm increments up the face. These are the centre points for the holes.
  • Step 6. Cut out the holes

    Clamp the form ply to the work bench. Use the drill with the 38mm hole saw attachment to cut out the holes. When using the hole saw, cut halfway through, then turn the ply over to continue the cut. This helps prevent the timber chipping.

  • Step 7. Join the base to the face

    Use the PVA glue to join the face and the base together. Wipe away any excess glue. Then secure it with the fixing gun.

  • Step 8. Attach the triangle supports

    Put the triangle supports in place and secure them with the fixing gun.

  • Step 9. Secure the rack

    Pre-drill with the 3mm drill bit and fix together with the 40mm black timber screws. To avoid having screws on the front of the rack, drill from the base through to the face. 

  • Step 10. Finish off the wine rack

    Wipe off any excess glue from the rack. Use 120 grit sandpaper to smooth the holes for the wine and the frame. We left our wine rack raw for an industrial look, but you can paint yours if you like.

  • Step 11. Cheers to a job well done

    Now all you need to do is put your wine rack and the wine in place. And there you have it, a stylish and sleek looking wine rack that you made yourself.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
