Wine Glass Caddy

The DIYer

At our next DIYer class I will be recommending this little delight as our first class project.

What better way to set up for a nice evening for two than with a nice bottle of wine, and what better way to serve it than with the wine glass caddy that you made.

This little delight is one of the easier DIYer projects.


Here is how to make it:

1 - You will need a piece of wood 12 inches long by 6 inches wide.

I recommend using a soft pine, it’s easy to work with and will last when sealed properly.

2 - Round the ends (if desired) using a jig saw or coping saw.

3 - Sand the edges to a slight curve using sandpaper or a sanding sponge.

4- Cut a 2-inch hole in the center and two 1-inch holes about 1-inch in from each end using a hole saw (attaches to a drill or drill press).

5 - Using your jig/coping saw, cut a ½-inch groove from the outer edge to the 1-inch hole on each end.

You can slightly round the edges to give it a more finished look.

6 - Stain your wine glass caddy using a stain color of your liking. It is best to use a stain that has a sealer in it.

7 - Apply two coats of clear coat (spray on or brush on). Be sure to allow it to dry thoroughly between coats.
