This wine rack is made from four staves of a reclaimed wine barrel. It is designed to resemble the French riddling racks that keep the corks moist by storing bottles at an angle. The staves are staggered to create a unique look. This creates a beautiful piece of functional woodwork while also showcasing the staves' former life as a barrel—marks from the barrel's banding are visible, as are burgundy stains from the pinot noir it once housed.

Measurements are approximately 36 inches by 15 inches at the widest points. The racks are constructed using wood glue and dowels for strength, and are sanded smooth, stained, and finished with shellac. They have mounting brackets on the back, with hardware that allows them to be hung both vertically and horizontally. Molly bolts are included, which provide exceptional hanging strength and can be mounted securely into drywall without the need to locate and drill into studs.

Alternatively, racks can be built with stands to be placed upright on the floor.
