Stack Your Wine Bottles with Style.

vineyard3 Stack your Wine Bottles with Style : Vineyard by Pack a& Rack

I can't think of a better way to put it, so I'll let the manufacturer describe the Vineyard from Pack and Rack:

Why hide a beautiful thing? Wine speaks to all your senses, not least to the eye. So why then tuck away a beautiful bottle of deepest red with a label that probably has been designed by a well known artist? Show your wine - let friends and customers admire this piece of art!

It's not the first wine of this type I've seen, but somehow, this one just seems to get it right. Plus, it's entirely DIYable.

If I were making one, I'd fit the shirt sleeve inside the suit sleeve, pin them in place, turn them inside out and then sew a seam across the bottom, as suggested in the pic below. What to do with the middle part of the...

Sporadic Wine Racks....DIYable?

Modern Cellar’s Sporadic Wall Panels turn wine bottles into sculpture. Elegant, lovely and simple. So simple, in fact, I’m thinking they’d be easily diy-able. No? The website doesn’t offer any info as to the prices of the ready-made versions, but I’m guessing they aren’t cheap. For all you interested wood workers out there, the dimensions ARE included in the individual panels’ descriptions.
