2 Time Saving Tips for DIY Wine Rack Plans

I’m going to show you 2 really simple tips to use with your diy wine rack plans that will save time and money on the project. Wine rack plans are often used as a simple first time project by folks new to woodworking, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be mistakes made because they sure do happen! The following tips should help you to steer clear of the worst of them.

Tips For Diy Wine Rack Plans

1. It’s important to decide how many bottles you plan on storing so you can work out your space needs before you begin building. You’d be quite surprised how much space even a few bottles can occupy, this number will help you decide the shape of rack you choose. For example, wall wine rack plans are going to differ quite a lot from floor standing units but it’s surprising to find that they often hold a similar number of bottles. If you don’t know how many bottles want to store, you should consider going for a modular design, this keeps the same footprint but shelves can be added to it vertically when needed.

2. Decide whether you want your wine rack to showcase your collection or just for storage, and out of general view. People often complain that their chosen plans are for a rather dull looking design but that they want to have the rack as a feature in their home. If only a basic design is offered by your set of wine rack plans, build with an item of furniture and the general theme of where it will go in mind. This simple change can be implemented quite easily by using a higher grade of wood or applying a more decorative, personal finish.

Even with the most impressive set of designs to work from when building your diy wine rack, plans won’t save you from occasionally making simple mistakes. These tips will help to making sure your project succeeds on your first attempt.
