Design-Your-Own Wine Racks
Tinker toys are more rewarding
This wine rack for the price is not worth the frustration and energy to put it together. Once together the pegs do not sit evenly (and I consider myself to be pretty crafty) so the rack is very unstable. Not a safe feeling for expensive bottles of wine.

Very sturdy wine rack
This wine rack is somewhat hard to put together (definitely need a rubber mallet and some patience to make it level), but once it's together, it's a rock! Super sturdy, and I love that I can always add to it later. Matches really well with my J.K. Adams spice rack and made in the USA also!

Love it - and get a rubber mallot
Christmas gift for my husband - he loved it. And be sure to have a rubber mallot around, he used my shoe for a while...will be taking that to the cobbler!

This thing is great. Yes, it takes some effort to put it together. The pins are a tight fit. This is a good thing, unless you want it to fall apart and drop your wine all over the place. Get yourself a rubber mallet, a hard surface, and a six pack of beer, and go to town. The pins are sturdy and can take a hard mallet hit, don't be shy. After assembling it you will feel a nice bit of DIY satisfaction every time you look at it.
My only complaint is that some of the holes on the hexagonal beams are not perfectly centered. This causes the rack to be slightly out of square in some spots. It's barely noticeable from a distance and once you've got it full of bottles, but if you look closely it's a little wonky. I don't mind it, it adds to the hand crafted look and it's nice to have something that doesn't look like a robot built it. However some might be bothered by it. I have attached a picture of one such off-center hole.
