Wine Rack – DIY March 8, 2013 By Shanty2Chic 73K+

Hey guys! Recently, our friends at Ryobi Tools challenged us to come up with a cheap and easy wine rack to be featured on Ryobi Nation. We love a good challenge like this! So… Here is how our ‘Shanty’ Wine Rack turned out…

Today we will be showing you all how to make this simple rustic chic wine rack for under $15. Can’t beat that! Here are the supplies you will need for this project… 1 – 2×6 cut at 38″ 5 – 2×4 cut at 10″ 10 – 5/16 x 4 1/2″ hex bolts (we found ours on the hardware aisle for $.38 a piece) 10 – 2 1/2″ wood screws wood glue finishing supplies Now let’s get started! We used our Ryobi 10″ compound miter saw to make all the cuts. This saw makes it simple and quick! We had them done in no time!

Before attaching all of our pieces, we like to sand all of our corners and edges down a bit. http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2013/03/wine-rack.html

We love the look it gives the finished piece! Ryobi’s 18V ONE+ Corner Cat Finish Sander is one of our very favorite tools. It isn’t bulky or heavy at all, and the power this tool gives is awesome! LOVE. We use it all the time and it’s perfect for this job.

We started by marking our 2×6 board. We lined up our 2×4 piece every 6″ and marked lines on the bottom and top of the 2×4. We did this to both sides of the 2×6 board.

Before attaching our 2×4′s to our 2×6, we put 2 holes in the top and front of each 10″ piece. You want them really close to the front. Ours are about 1/4″ from the edge.

We used our Ryobi 18V Lithium-Ion Drills for this part! This is hands down our favorite drill we have ever used! It has so many cool features that set it apart from others, and it’s lightweight. Next, we added a line of Gorilla wood glue onto our 2×4 pieces and clamped them to the 2×6 where we made our marks. Easy!

We used our drill to pre-drill 2 small holes where each 2×4 piece would sit.

Now we used our drill to insert our wood screws through those holes. This is what the back of the 2×6 looks like where each 2×4 sits.

After we had all of our boards attached, we gave the whole piece a coat of our favorite…

Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Dark Walnut (You can find it at Lowe’s!) . After it dried we went back over the edges and corners again with our Ryobi Corner Cat to give it a worn finish. Love it! We decided to ‘shanty’ it up a bit by adding a small label on the front of each board using Rust-Oleum chalkboard spray paint. We just taped the area off with blue tape and spray painted the Rust-Oleum chalkboard paint on. Totally optional! Our final step was adding our hex screws. Just insert 1 into each of the holes and you are set! Make sure to use anchors on the wall if you can’t attach yours to a stud. Here is ours all finished up!

Avatar Alyssa • 5 months ago Hi! We just did this project and it turned out great!! Except for one this, the wine bottles don't fit! All but one bottle we purtchased are too wide and don't fit behind the screws. We did tall nails instead of hex screws, but they are still inserted as close to the edge as possible. We could take the 2x4s off but I'm worried that with the wood glue it will mess up the 2x6. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix it? Thanks so much!!! Reply

Ditto issue. I preemptively put them closer to the edge than mentioned which means all standard bottles now fit. doing it again I would definitely go with different bolts. To fix it you may have to try wood putty and redrilling smaller holes for smaller bolts. Or you could try to go fancy and get some type of artisan bolt/do-hicky that bows outward slightly so it would accommodate the fact that the bottles are round at their largest point. http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2013/03/wine-rack.html
