Wine Bottle Shelf

Wine Racks & StorageOne aspect of wine appreciation is the sheer beauty of the bottles — with the right wine racks you can make your wine collection a meaningful part of your décor. Wine storage should be more than a cardboard box in the basement, especially when the options include everything from freestanding racks to furniture–quality wine cabinets complete with built–in wine glass holders. Whether you seek an elegant wood cabinet, an expandable bar cabinet, a wine bottle carousel, stemware rack, wrought iron wine jail, wine rack kit, wine table or wine entertainment cart, our selection of wine bars is certain to please.

So much wine and nowhere to store it! If this is a common storage dilemma for you, then you desperately need to invest in a wine rack (or two, or three). Whether you use it to showcase your bottles or simply as a loading dock between the store and the refrigerator, wine bottle holders are an elegant and easy way to add more storage and organization to your kitchen.

Wine Bottle Shelf

I intend to use some old wine bottles, (and I'm thinking of stacking some of those metal spice containers) to make the shelf spacers for a shelf in the pantry/kitchen area.  An easy and delightfully eye catching project.  Solid instructable and one to get the creative juices flowing.  This is a project where individual creativity can get a chance to blossom, this is one of the best instructables yet, a starting point that leads you into your own creations.

i used to work in a winery, and would walk on wine bottles all the time. never tried a glass, but the bottles never flinched. you could stack a lot of weight on a bottle.

Soak the labels and scrape off as much as you can, then take off the glue with Goo Gone or my favorite – wig adhesive remover (ProTouch Adhesive Remover comes in a spray bottle). Dry the glue with a paper towel so the remover stays in place, let it dissolve the glue a bit, then scratch off. it will be sticky, so wash it off with dish detergent. Try to NOT let the goo ball go down the drain.

If it is baked on enamel, scrape it off with a knife or razor blade. then you can scrape off what you don't want to keep.

That sounds like a great idea to me. Yes the eyes/hooks and tensioners make the whole system rigid, stopping it wobbling side to side as well as keeping the bottles in place. They work on the principal of the bottom of the bottle biting into the wood slightly, and/or the boards bending very slightly.

For one module you will need: Four bottles. All the same brand/height/shape preferable. Wash them thoroughly in hot soapy water. Two hook and eye strainers / turnbuckles as they are sometimes called. I used the smallest I could find, which are 14mm OD at the buckle and 5mm OD at the threads. Such as these from Screwfix. Two planks of wood, prepared as shown in the .pdf template – careful! there are two different hole diameters, and if you are leaving one rough edge as I did here, make sure you take your measurements from the straight datum edge. *REVISION* I would now NOT drill the holes in the lower shelf (the 30mm ones) all the way through, but drill them from below to half depth, using a flat bit. They will then rest on the tops of the bottles of the module below, rather than allowing the necks to pass striaght through as was the case in this prototype. (See discussion in comments) Screw in the cup hooks halfway between the holes on either side, as shown. Depending on the height of your bottles, you may need some ess hooks too to help the strainer reach between the upper and lower hooks.

This is an epilogue to suggest some other Ten Green-type furniture that I have worked on since: A kitchen shelving unit, which is more of a kit really, and two coffee tables which were made to commission/to suit specific bits of wood!The tables are just the same as the shelving modules but flipped upside down, and without holes in the shelf at the base of the bottles (the table top). More info at www.zero-waste.co.uk.I would be up for trialling the new ‘Collaborate’ feature of instructables with someone on this project. Message me if you’re interested.

Show All Items Ten Green is a modular shelving system, constructed simply from local recyclates. This prototype was built with the Coach House Trust in Glasgow, using bottles from their recycling centre, and wood from the maintenance of their own sites. You can use any found timber, and adapt the dimensions to suit the wood you are working with.Some examples are for sale at our shop here.

corner wine cupboard? I like this, but I'd also like this type of shelving layout for cookbooks in a spare corner near/in the kitchen (hahaha, in the kitchen. There's never a spare corner in those.)
