Wine Rack Step 3

Here’s the next step in building my wine rack. Sand all the Walnut pieces since it will be really difficult to sand them when the wine rack is put together. Do not sand the inside edges of the vertical supports since they will have to be flush when bonded.

Sanding the vertical supports

I put the vertical supports flush together and sanded the outside and inside edges.

After all the Walnut pieces were sanded I stained them with Danish Walnut. Do not get any stain in the groves or on the mating surfaces of the vertical supports.


Now we need to start gluing the pieces together. Clamp spacers to the outside of the small shelf pieces to align the Maple pieces.


Carefully apply glue to each of the groves. Don’t use too much glue and keep it off of the stained pieces.


The glueup should look something like this.

Glue fixturing

If your sawing was very precise then it might take some tapping to persuade the Maple pieces into place.

Tapping in the pieces

That should do it until next week. Have a great week ahead.
