THE WINE RACK -
A Spirited Gift Idea
Creating The Components
Start by laying out the four rails on two pieces of stock (A) as shown in Fig 1. By following the procedure outlined here, you'll be able to get two rails from each piece of stock and save time in the process. Center four 4" diameter circles on the rail stock, leaving a 1/2" space between the circles. Use a hole saw, scroll saw or saber saw to cut out the circles.
Use your Drum Sander to smooth the insides of your circular cut-outs. Set up your table saw or bandsaw rip fence to a width of 2-1/2". Rip cut one 2-1/2" rail from the rail stock. Then turn the same piece of rail stock and rip the second rail from it. Repeat the procedure on the other piece of rail stock to get all four rails.
