This step by step diy woodworking project is about plant stand with wine rack plans. This article features detailed instructions for building a plant stand with a wine rack for 4 bottles. This is a basic project that requires basic materials and pocket screws for a professional result. Take a look over the rest of our woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.
When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

Building a wine rack plant stand
The first step of the project is to assemble the front for the plant stand. Use 2×2 lumber for the legs, 1×4 lumber for the supports and 1×3 lumber of the wine rack boards. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the slats and secure them to the legs using 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints and make sure the corners are square.
Assemble the back of the wine rack, as shown in the diagram. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the slats and secure them to the legs with 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints. Use a jigsaw to make the curved cuts to the wine rack supports.

Building the back wine supports explained.
Assemble the frame of the wine rack from 1×4 lumber. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the slats. Fit them to front and back of the wine rack. Use 1 1/4″ screws and glue to lock the supports into place. Make sure the corners are right-angled for a professional result.
Build the top from 3/4″ plywood. Smooth the edges with sandpaper and attach 1×1 trims to top panel. Cut both ends of the trims at 45 degrees, add glue to the joints and secure them to the top with 1 1/2″ brad nails.
Center the frame of the plant stand to the tabletop. You can drill pocket holes through the top braces and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the top. Alternatively, you can insert 1 1/2″ brad nails through the top into the frame of the plant stand. Add glue to the joints for a professional result.
Use 1×4 lumber for the bottom shelf. Mark the cut lines on the slats that are placed around the legs and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper.
Fit the slats to the lower braces and place them equally-spaced. Use 1 1/2″ brad nails to lock the slats into place. Leave no gaps between the components.
Next, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Fit the wood plugs to the pocket holes to get a professional result.
Fill the holes with wood putty and let them dry out for a few hours. Smooth the surface with 100-220 grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.
Top Tip: Apply a few coats of paint or stain to the components, to enhance the look of the project.
