I did a lot of research on the wine rack build and here is what I found. Keep in mind I am a novice at everything, from brewing beer, to wine making and wood work...I really don't know if I have any real talents except for drinking. But here is what I found. Wood is expensive, at least here in Spokane, Wa. I found that 3 sisters wine rack and after shopping at all of the places in town that sell wood, I could not build that rack for less than $100. I settled on the cube style rack and built one out of the "straightest" pine 1x12 that I could find. Did not turn out square and still cost me about $40. I am going to give it another go and use laminated 1x12 as that seemed to be close to the same price. I was building it to put on my bar where everyone can see it so if it is not meant to be displayed then build those all day long and put them in a back room. The rack from amazon that was posted on here is what I settled on. 120 bottle rack for $58 + $12 shipping was economical and easy to put together. They offered a $30 rebate if I signed up for an amazon card and the whole thing was shipped to be for about $40 so you cannot beat that. If I had a "wine cellar" where I was going to age a bunch of wine, I would consider something like the skid row rack because that would be economical and easy to build. Like I said I am a novice and others who are good with wood working and have a way to buy good inexpensive lumber could possibly build those things cheaper and with higher quality that I.
Good Luck! VnMD- what are the demensions of your cube style rack?
