This standard six-bottle wine rack is easy to make and takes very little time. Make one for yourself then make one for a friend. The compact size of the rack makes it perfect for a small dining space or to sit on top of the fridge.

We did not finish or paint the wood on our rack, instead we left it natural and added a pop of color with neon string.

Materials and Tools:

2 pieces of birch plywood (15" x 10.5")
1" hinges (2)
neon string about 10" to 12"
drill with a 3-1/5" drill bit (hole saw) and a 1/16" drill bit
150-grit sandpaper

Determine Hole Placement

Use a straightedge and a pencil, and measure and mark where the center of each wine bottle cut-out will go. On our wine rack, the cut-outs are 1-1/2" from the sides and 1" from the top and bottom. Each circle is 1" apart from one another.
