This step by step diy project is about diy wood wine caddy plans. I have designed this project so you can build it in just a few hours. If you are looking for a rustic gift idea for the loved ones, you should give this a shot. Remember that you need to adjust the size and the design of the caddy to suit your needs. Take a look over the rest of my 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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

Building a wood wine caddy
The first step of the project is to build the sides for the wine caddy. Mark the cut lines on the 1×4 lumber and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper to even out the surface.
Use 1/2″ drill bit to make holes through the top of the end components. Make sure you don’t apply too much force, so you don’t tear the edges.
Cut a 3 1/2″ piece of lumber for the bottom of the wine caddy. Align the edges and make sure the corners are square. Insert 1 1/2″ brad nails through the ends into the bottom. Add glue to the joints to enhance the rigidity of the frame.
Fit 1×2 strips of wood to the sides of the wine caddy. The strips of wood should be 1/4″ thick. Use 3/4″ nails to secure the slats to the end components. Add glue to the joints to enhance the bond of the components.
Cut a 5″ long piece of 1/2″ dowel and fit it to top of the wine caddy. Drill pilot holes through the top of the ends and insert 1 1/2″ brad nails to secure the handle into place. Add glue to the joints to lock the handle into place.
Smooth the edges with sandpaper and fill the holes with wood putty. Even out the surface with 120-200 grit sandpaper, making sure there are no sharp edges or protruding nails. Apply a few coats of stain to enhance the natural look of the wood. Moreover, seal the finish with a few coats of lacquer.
This is a simple project you should be able to build in a few hours without much effort. Remember that you need to adjust the size of the components so they suit your own particular needs. The best part of the project is that it makes for a rustic gift for the loved ones. Check out the rest of the indoor plans on my blog, so you get even more building inspiration.
