Make a Wine Rack

We used a wood planter with a lip, which has a backside that serves as a nailing and gluing surface for the bottle supports. If your planter doesn't have a lip, nail 12 strips to the inside walls of the planter to make an attachment surface. For nonwood planters, assemble the parts with construction adhesive instead of nails and glue.
