Boat Wine Rack

Project completion on a boat is all about prioritizing, right?  Well, we enjoy our vino.  As such, one fun project Scott did in-betwixt bigger projects while we were still in Ft. Lauderdale was to make a wine rack for our galley.  We have a wine "locker" to stow bottles in bulk, but I thought it might be nice to have a place to store open bottles where they'd be easily accessed and safe while underway.  I told Scott my idea and showed him where I thought it could be installed, and he immediately got to work designing the rack with some scrap wood, a couple of dowel rods and two brackets.  The next day, we had a custom-made wine rack that holds five bottles ready for action.  Man do I love being married to a handy man!
Scott's hole saws came in handy yet again!
Taking the measurements so it fits just-so.

Dry fit and more measurements
The finished product!  A couple of brackets, some press-fit dowel rods, and some scrap wood and VOILA! Wine rack!

Looks great! We were lucky that a wine rack was installed in our boat when we bought it - very lucky! Currently we also keep some Brimley's Gold Vanilla Rum on hand for impromptu visits. Also, love the Apothic brand, my favorite is the white.

Save travels!
