Scrap Wood Wine Holder

Scrap Wood Wine Holder

Hey everyone!  Katie here from Addicted 2 DIY.  I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time letting go of good scrap wood.  If I think it could be used for anything in the future, I try to hold onto it.  Plus, my kids love to go through the scrap bin and see what they can put together.  It’s good, family fun!  I dug through my scrap pile recently and built this simple wine holder.  It was inspired by one that my aunt has in her kitchen that I just love.  It’s simple, it’s rustic, and it can be customized to hold however many bottles you like!


  • 2 – 1×6 boards cut to 18″ long
  • 1 – 1×4 boards cut to 18″ long
  • 2 – 1×4 boards cut to 4 3/4″ long
  • brad nailer
  • 1 1/4″ brad nails
  • wood glue
  • drill
  • 2″ forstner bit or hole saw
  • 220 grit sandpaper
  • finish of your choice (I used Minwax stain in Espresso)


Step 1: Dig through your scrap pile and cut your wood pieces to size.


Step 2: Glue and clamp the 18″ 1×4 board flush with the top of the 1×6 boards.  Nail in place with 1 1/4″ brad nails.


Step 3: Glue and clamp the 1×4 ends and nail into place with 1 1/4″ brad nails.  This will form a box.


Step 4: Mark the center of the 1×4 board and then mark where your holes will go.  I built this to hold four wine bottles, so I measured 3″ in from one end and then placed the holes 4″ apart.


Step 5: Drill the holes using your 2″ forstner bit or hole saw.


Step 6: Sand the entire project down with 220 grit sandpaper.


Step 7:  Paint or stain in the color of your choice. When dry fill with your favorite wines!


I love being able to use up wood in my scrap pile for simple and pretty projects like this.  Plus, this wine holder is so versatile.

Now I think I may have to build a few more of these as gifts!  Mother’s Day is going to be here before we know it and this is a perfect gift idea with a favorite bottle of wine.  Do you have a scrap wood bin?  What projects have you made from it?
