Building Wine Storage

Saturday, I dove right into my wine storage solution.
 The sonotube wine rack just wasn't cutting it.  You can see that project here! 
 More storage is needed as our winery is growing.
  One can only make so much jam when you have an abundance of raspberries.
  So we took up the art of winemaking.  I shared our raspberry wine recipe here!  
  Anyways, I bought 5 sheets of sheathing plywood as I didn't want to sell my firstborn for the good both sides plywood.  I kinda like to keep her around.  Besides a wine bottle doesn't really care what kind of wood it gets to rest on....does it?  I guess I should have asked!
 Because hubby was out of town,  I didn't have the he man facade to handle five 4x8 sheets so I  had the lumber store cut the wood into more manageable pieces; 13"x48" strips.  I cut the smaller pieces for the shelves,  at home.   For each unit I cut 2 - 13"x42" pieces,
4 - 13"x40 1/2" pieces, 6 - 13x13" pieces.   I assembled all four units........









I used my trusty label maker and labeled all the different wines. 


I guess I could paint the shelving but it kind of matches the pine shelving in our cold room already.  So meh......I will leave it for now.
Plus I don't think I could be trusted with a paintbrush once I sample the product.
 Looks like we need to make a lot more wine.

Check out my new wine labelling system.  It's perfect now!!

Cheers!

    1. Thanks Sandy! I have changed my web background as this isn't the first time this problem has occurred. I think it only happens with the Internet Explorer browser. Hopefully this fixes that problem.

  21. Wow!!! These are fabulous! How amazing that you made these yourself ! I don't think I could ever without cutting an apendage off. I WILL be showing this project to the hubby (I'll need his help) but this is a great storage solution for our basement. Great project, Karen!!

  22. That's a great DIY wine shelving solution. Simple, space-saving and you can fit several hundred bottles in there. One addition that would look great in the shelving would be original wine crates. They look great and give a chateau-chic look to a wine room. If your looking for original wine crates or boxes visit Winepine - www.winepine.com
