1″ hole saw
1 1/4 inch pocket hole screws
1 @ 24″x5″
1 @ 24″x9 1/4″
1 @ 24″x5 1/2″
Buy a piece of plywood that is 2’x2′ by 3/4″ thick. If your store will rip it down for you even better. Be sure and measure your first cut, then use the saw, then measure again, then cut, etc. Doing it this way will ensure your pieces are the correct measurements.
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain.
Either rip these cuts yourself on your table saw or have your store where you buy your wood rip the plywood down for you. You will have some scrap.
At first this may look daunting but I assure you, if you just measure, place the appropriate guide marks in pencil, and then use a hole saw it will be a breeze.
Take your 5 1/2″ piece and measure from one long edge down one inch.
Make a guide mark all the way down your piece
Now measure and mark at 4″ intervals using the short edge. You should have 5 guide marks across your board now.
Now measure and mark at 2″ intervals using the short edge. You should have 6 of these marks across your board now.
Where your 1″ down guide mark meets your 2″ guide marks only, use a drill and cut a 1″ hole.
Repeat across until you have six holes.
Once done, run it through the table saw at the 1″ down guide mark carefully to keep a straight edge.
You just completed the notches that your wine bottles will rest in!
This is what your notched piece should now look like.
Now drill your pocket holes in you back piece.
Set the Kreg Jig at 3/4″ and make your ph’s on the BACK of the back piece that measures 24″x5″
Now drill your pocket holes in your notched piece.
Set the Kreg Jig at 3/4″ and make your ph’s on the BACK of the notched piece that measures 24″x4 1/2″
Now attach the back to the bottom with 1 1/4″ ph screws.
Now attach the front to the bottom with 1 1/4″ ph screws and your done!
Its now complete you just need to stain or paint it!
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
