How to Build a Wall-Mounted Wine Rack
A wine rack mounted on the wall adds style and storage space to your kitchen. Follow these instructions to construct your own wine rack.
Begin with birch plywood cut at your desired height. Measure and cut both pieces of plywood to width. The width should be the length of one wine bottle or about 14 inches.
Measure the width of your PVC pipe and the thickness of your plywood. Add these amounts and cut a piece of plywood for the back at that width.
Assemble box frame for wine rack using wood glue, following with screws.
Cut pieces of plywood to fit for top and bottom. Attach the top piece.
Using a miter saw, cut your PVC tubing into pieces the length of one wine bottle plus 1/4 inch.
Slip PVC tubes into the box (Image 1). Add the bottom piece of plywood (Image 2). Secure PVC tubes by screwing through the back piece using 1/2” screws.
Prepare the wine rack for painting by filling the screw holes with putty and sanding the unit thoroughly. Paint with primer.
After primer has dried, add a coat of chalkboard paint using a foam roller. Wait 24 hours before applying a second coat.
Finish the unit with pre-painted wood trim.
