Wine lovers know how important wine storage is. Building up a collection of wine is a source of pride for those who know their vino, and you need somewhere safe to keep all of those bottles. If you aren’t lucky enough to have a wine cellar in your house, you’ll need to come up with other accommodations for the precious liquid.
There are many wine storage racks and wine coolers available to purchase. They range from the very simple one-bottle holder to the massive and impressive room-filling coolers which keep each bottle in optimum conditions until you decide to take them out.
With modular systems, when building wine storage racks you get almost ninety percent of the wine storage rack in pre-assembled form and each assembled part can easily be glued together and which are also strong enough to last a whole lifetime. Once you are finished building your wine storage rack you will find that the cost of the rack would work out to just three dollars for a single bottle of wine.
But what if you can’t find a wine rack that you like? What if you don’t like any of the ready-made wine storage systems you find? What if you just have that adventurous spirit that makes you say “I could do better”?
For the adventurous wine drinker, there is nothing like DIY wine storage to get the creative juices flowing. DIY wine storage can take almost any form that you can dream up. You can make it big or small, elaborate or minimalist - it’s all up to you, your abilities, and the space you have to work with.
The best part about building a wine rack system is that you can choose the right kind of wood that will match well with your d?cor and there are also different wood finishes that you can choose including stained or natural finish. Of course, choosing mahogany wood will make your wine rack stand out and at the same time it will also ensure that wine rack is strong enough to safely hold quite a few wine bottles.
However, if you have a slim budget, then you may want to use softwoods such as fir or pine for building wine storage racks and pine especially, is rather cheap though the grain is tight as well as straight and it delivers enough strength to safely hold your wine bottles.
There are plenty of other DIY wine rack projects out there - a simple internet search will turn up tons of ideas that you can use and expand on. This is a great way to personalize your wine experience and make sure that every bottle reminds you of the hard work you have put into your very own DIY wine storage space.
