Here is HOW!
Step 1. Cut Cut Cut
Cut 1×4 boards into five boards to 30 inches long, and one board to 27 inches long. Cut two small pieces that are just 2 inches. Then cut three boards of 2x4s down to size. Clean up rough spots and edges using an orbital sander.
Step 2. Trace and Cut
Round over the front edges for all the 2x4s. Use a can as a stencil and trace it with your marker/pencil.
Using a jigsaw, follow the lines you traced to make that rounded corner. Do this for all three 2x4s.
Step 3. Mark and Measure
With a 1×4 board, measure in 4 inches and put a mark. Then measure 8 1/2 inches and then finally 12 3/4 inches. Do the same thing on the other side. Use a square and put a line on each mark.
Step 4. Drill
Measure 2 inches back from the front and put a mark. Clamp your board down and take the drill to put a hole in each mark.
Use a straight edge and draw a line straight down from the left and right edge of the hole just drilled. Do this for all six of the holes.
Step 5. Notches
Cut out those notches with your jigsaw. Clean up the edges with an orbital sander.
Step 6. Assemble
Assemble the lumber to form the wine rack. Drill the 1x4s for the screws later.
Step 7. Glue and Screw
Apply glue to the edge of the boards. Put screws.
Locate the center to attach the middle 2×4 board.
Attach the other 1×4 boards at the back. Use glue or screws and nail it.
Add the board at the front.
Put the 2 – inch pieces under and then attach the wineglass rack. Glue and tack it.
Step 8. Sanding
Remove excess glue and do a final sanding
Step 9. Stain
Stain your project using a spray – on stain. Let dry.
Step 10. Mounting
Drill some holes so you can attach the rack to the wall. With a stud finder, finder the studs in the wall where you will attach the wine rack.
