June 16, 2006, Newsletter Issue #25: How to Build a Wine Rack

Tip of the Week

Sure, you can build a wine rack out of pine, cedar, or other decorative woods, but did you know they are prone to rot, and the rot can taint your expensive wines? The best way to build a wine rack is to use mahogany or redwood. Redwood is endangered, though, so try to stick with mahogany or your retailers suggestion. These woods may be a bit more expensive, but they are mildew and rot resistant.

They are also strong, durable woods, so they won't dent as easily as many other woods, although redwood is softer than mahogany. For a lifetime of enjoyment and utility, learn how to build a wine rack with the right wood. That way, you won't have to worry about replacing your wine rack someday, and you'll know your expensive collection is housed in the best wine rack available.
