Repurposed galvanized pipe hangers work in pairs to hold bottles of your favorite vintages with flair.

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: For each bottle, you’ll need two galvanized pipe hangers — one small and one large. Replace the long screw in each hanger with a shorter machine screw and a nut.

Step 2: Cut the hangers to length. Measure how far you want each ring to project from the front of the rack, then allow a few centimetres for the straight end to wrap around the back panel.

Step 3: Cut the centre panel from a 1″×8″ [2.54 cm x 20.32 cm] board and cut two side panels from a 1″×2″ [2.54 cm x 5.08 cm]. Paint. Mark holes for each pair of hangers on the sides of the centre panel. Drill pilot holes.

Step 4: Attach the hangers to the sides of the centre panel with 1″ [2.54 cm] wood screws. Use pliers to bend the ends of the hangers onto the back. Secure ends with ½” [1.27 cm] wood screws.

Step 5: Cut two 1″×2″ [2.54 cm x 5.08 cm] braces to join the backs of the centre panel and side panels, one near the top and bottom. Using the front of the centre panel as a guide, screw the braces to the side panels.

Step 6: Turn the centre panel over and screw the middle parts of the braces to the back of the centre panel. It helps to stand the rack on end. Use a Hangman system to attach the finished rack to the wall.
