So here we are, we have our list so let’s go!
Carefully measure these pieces as they all need to fit super tight and snug as this could ruin your final design. CAREFULLY saw each piece to the correct size.
Take the eight 1” x 6” x 17” pieces and lay them out like this:
Now take the two of the 1” x 4” x 44” pieces and lay them across the top and bottom:
Make sure everything is nice and snug.
Now take the two 1” x 6” x 24” pieces and lay them over the top on both ends:
Take the two 1” x 6” x 33” pieces and lay them across the top and bottom:
Using your trim head screws, move along the border securing the top layer to the bottom layer. Make sure to get screws in each of the boards on the bottom:
Flip it over, measure and mark 9” up from the bottom on each side:
Take one of the 1” x 2” x 44” s and place it so the top of the board meets your pencil marks:
Secure it in place using the trim head screws
Grab the wood filler and fill the holes then set it to one side.
Now take the 1” x 4” x 44” and the other 1” x 2” x 44” and lay them out like this:
Place the 1” x 2” flush across the top of the 1” x 4” and secure it using the trim head screws:
Now take the 2” x 4” x 44” and lay it on its edge. Place your other piece on top of the 2” x 4” like this:
Make sure it is flush and secure it using the trim head screws!
Fill the holes with wood filler.
Once the wood filler has all dried, it’s time to sand it down!
After you have sanded it all down, dust it off and start to stain it all:
After it has all completely dried, give it some poly
Once the poly is dry, place the smaller piece across the framework so that there is a ½” gap above the 1” x 2”
Secure the two pieces together by screwing through the back of the frame using your construction screws:
Pipe time! Screw it all together and make sure you make two of them. After you have done that, connect the two using the 36” pipe:
Place it across the shelf evenly and secure it with the construction screws:
Now all you need to do is attach the picture hangers and there you have your very own wine rack!
