The Serendipity Wine Rack is a wall-mounted wine rack made from several staves reclaimed from a used wine barrel. It can hold a case of wine bottles, inserted neck first. It's called 'Serendipity' because, in all honesty, the design is happenstance. The original thought was to have a seamless, wine-barrel-esque shape with some holes to plunk in some bottle necks. That didn't work so well, as wine barrels are expertly crafted by skilled coopers who ensure that only the outside edges of each stave makes contact with its neighbor, held together not by glue or sheer friction, but by the pressure from pounded-in-place metal bands. Soooo... a new tactic was required. The result, though, is quite beautiful and was better than intended... a happy accident indeed. 

It is designed after French riddling racks and is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of functional woodworking.   It is constructed using wood glue and dowels for strength. The rack has a high-quality plywood backing, mounted to it with bolts. There are keyhole hangers for easily hanging the rack, and drywall anchors are included with purchase. These provide exceptional hanging strength (rated at 50 pounds per bolt) and can be mounted securely into drywall (or even concrete) without the need to locate and drill into studs. Measurements are approximately 36 inches by 14 inches at the widest points.   Production time is around a week, but I often have a few in stock that will ship within 2-3 days.  Email me at jon@rossittowoodworks.com for any questions.
