Follow These Steps:
- Cut the 1″ x 6″ – 8′ board of maple into the following lengths:
- a. (2) 28″
- b. (5) 5-1/2″ Squares
- Note: a 1″ x 6″ is already 5-1/2″ wide
- Mark the center of each 28″ board. This is 2-3/4″.
- Now that you have the center marked, measure the location for each 3-1/2 hole to be drilled. The center of each hole will be at these increments; 2-3/4”, 7-1/4”, 11-3/4”, 16-1/4”, 20-3/4”, 25-1/4”. Be sure to mark these along the centerline. Do this for both 28″ boards.
- Clamp down the 28″ and proceed to drill the holes using the 3-1/2″ hole saw. Remember to start the hole with the pilot bit on each marking you made on the centerline. This will ensure even spacing between each hole.
- Sand all pieces with 100 grit sandpaper prior to assembly.
- Begin assembling your wine rack by attaching one of the 5-1/2″ squares to each end and on the bottom, creating an L shape on the ends. The final 5-1/2″ square will be placed on the bottom and in the middle. Be sure to pre-drill where you plan to put the wood trim screws with a 3/32″ drill bit. This will prevent cracking.
- Stain wine rack with a wood stain of your choice.
