Wine rack

Postby Sjh1977 » Sun Nov 19, 2017 7:13 am

Hi guys...my partner has her heart set on this wine rack(see link). Even though it’s going to be tricky, I’d like to have a go at making it.

I was hoping to get some advice with regards to joints. Unfortunately I don’t own a domino and a #0 biscuit is too large for the 30mm square timber. How would you guys approach it? ‘Get someone else to do it’ is probably the main consensus but, I’m going to have a crack at it! Thanks in advance for any advice

Cheers
Steve

That is going to be very difficult to make and get everything to line up. Dowels would be one way of doing the joints, but drilling all the pieces accurately is going to be a PITA even with jigs and a pillar drill. You could try and modify the design and just do lap joints - think garden trellis.

Agree, lap joints to make up each 'layer' then dowel rest. Or, buy a domino and sell it on/keep it!
Get an engineer to make a collar attached to an l bracket to guide a drill for dowel? Pocket hole screw the whole thing?

Thanks for the replies guys. I was thinking half lap for the centre joints and pocket hole to join each section, if that makes sense. My only worry is lining things up and getting the cuts perfectly in line. It’s going to be a labour of love but I’m determined

You might be able to do the half lap joints using a router and a jig. Clamp a number of pieces together and then run the router across them to form the rebate. The jig could reference from the previously cut rebate. The jig would have to be set at exactly 90 degrees otherwise the rebates would all be different. The alternative would be bite the bullet and pay the £1385 for real thing!

I'd go for halving joints with a step and repeat jig for a tablesaw with dado head.

Can you buy dado blades in the uk? Can they fit any saw or do you need an adapter for the arbour?

Yes you can but, unfortunately I don’t have one. I’m thinking of making up a jig and using my router to create the half lap joints as suggested. It’s certainly going to be a labour of love.

Thanks for all the great advice so far, much appreciated.
