DIY Wine Bottle Holder

Hey there! We are already at day 9 in our 12 Days of Christmas Series and I have a really fun and easy DIY Christmas Gift to share with you today!12DaysCOUNTER9

We love a good wine bottle holder and we have created a few hanging versions in the past! I thought this Table Top Wine Holder was in order 😉
DIY-Wooden-Wine-Bottle-HolderI created this one with scraps but if you don’t have scraps, it will still be super inexpensive to make your own!

Here’s how I did it!


wine-holder-center-boardI started with a 1×12 that I cut at 11 1/4″ and marked a diagonal line from one corner to another.

cut-with-jigsawThen, I used my 18V Jigsaw to cut along the line creating two triangle pieces.

wine-holder-base-and-top-piecesNext, I cut two 1×4 boards at 19 1/2″ and cut one end of one of the boards at a 45°.

wine-holder-piecesHere are the three pieces you need for the holder.

drill-pocket-holes-in-middleNow, drill three 1 1/4″ pocket holes on one of the 90° sides and then on the diagonal side.

wine-holder-pocket-holesYou can see where I drilled the pocket holes in the picture above.

ryobi-forstner-setNext, I used a 1 3/8″ Forstner Bit

drill-holes-for-wine-bottlesand drilled three holes in the mitered 1×4 board. I started on the end with the miter cut and drilled a hole at 4 1/2″, 10 1/2″ and 16 1/2″.

Rustoleum_Dark_Walnut-500x750Before I assembled it, I applied one coat of Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut stain on all of the pieces. I just wiped it on with a clean cloth, waited 5 minutes then blended the stain with a new clean cloth.

attach-baseNow to assembled! I attached the triangle piece to the other 1×4 (the one without the holes) with 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws. I placed it 3.5″ from the end.

back-of-wine-holderNext, I attached the remaining 1×4, the same way.

bottle-holder-flushThe back of the triangle piece should be flush with one side of the 1×4’s.

distress-edges-of-bottle-holderFinally, I roughed it up a bit with my Corner Cat Sander with an 80-grit pad!

DIY-Table-Top-Wine-HolderThat’s it! Just add your favorite bottles of wine and it makes a great table topper 🙂



DIY-Wine-Bottle-HolderThis one’s for me but I may have to throw one together for a gift exchange! Want to make one for yourself? Do you have someone in mind that would LOVE it?

    I’d love to build the floating shelves. I have a bowl and platter that are too big for anywhere else in my home & would look perfect on them!

  4. Teal on December 12, 2014 at 7:42 am

    I would use these tools for …well, I need a media center and a farmhouse bed somethin’ terrible! 😉

  5. fethiye on December 11, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    Need to finish my son’s bed, maybe with these tools?!

  9. Julie on December 10, 2014 at 9:22 pm

    I would make some drawers for my closet. I’ve made 2 already but know the kreg jig would make it SO much easier

  10. Heather on December 10, 2014 at 5:43 pm

    Love all the ideas! And would love to win, too 🙂 Thanks!!

  12. Heather Whitman on December 10, 2014 at 3:48 pm

    If I were to win, I’d definitely be making one of those fantastic wine racks. Love it! It would also come in very handy when I start working on our kitchen. Thanks so much for the chance to win such a helpful product. 🙂

  13. Liz on December 10, 2014 at 3:15 pm

    What a cool idea!

  14. Phil Reynolds on December 10, 2014 at 1:22 pm

    Nice little project for someone that like wine but doesn’t keep too many bottles at home.

  15. Rita on December 10, 2014 at 1:03 pm

    Wow love this amazing project. Love the tool too! Had to borrow one from my Uncle to do a couple projects myself with. Must return his soon… this would be an awesome gift to win. If I’m not lucky enough, hopefully Santa will find that I have been a good girl and will surprise me with one. Thanks for all your blogs and post!!

  16. Jennifer on December 10, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    I love! I’m going to make that and your beverage cart for my mom and dad’s kitchen! They are going to love it!

  17. annie on December 10, 2014 at 12:16 pm

    This is awesome! I need a jig so I can start building. I have it listed
    on my Christmas list! Maybe Santa will deliver? First, I’m going to cut
    down my old entertainment center for my newer TV. Then a console table
    for under a window in my bedroom, a desk (rustic X) from Ana White’s
    site and a laundry sorter.

  18. Katie Merrill on December 10, 2014 at 10:53 am

    Oh this sounds like a perfect weekend project for me and my wine! Not sure if 3 bottles would ever stay in there though lol. I would love this kit so I could start making larger projects with ease. I love your site, thanks so much for all the plans and awesome cute ideas!

  19. Anita Welsh Farrell on December 10, 2014 at 10:33 am

    What a great wine rack and great prize! That jig is definitely on my Christmas list! Hopefully Santa is listening.

  20. Laurie on December 10, 2014 at 9:30 am

    I have so many project ideas that I would use my Kreg Jig to make! Hope I win!
