Easy 10-ft Tall Wine Rack With Limited Tools!

Easy 10-ft Tall Wine Rack With Limited Tools!


Close your eyes, I’m going to guide you both
forward. Ok, look up. It looks so good! I love that! Big thanks to Lowe’s for sponsoring this video. Hey guys, we’re Evan and Katelyn and today
we’re doing something a little different. We’re actually going to my parents house to
build a wine rack on site. We’re there for just a couple days so my parents
are actually picking up some walnut from a lumber yard and they have never been to one
before. Look at all this wood honey! So much wood! Hopefully they get the right stuff. Look at that red wood. Wow. Before we start making any cuts here are a
few things we have to keep in mind. My parents want an open shelf look where wood
is actually only the sides of the shelves, there’s no top there’s no bottom, not even
the shelves themselves are wood. They are going to be made of metal. Since we’re working with limited tools we
didn’t want to have to bring any metal working tools so we came up with a clever solution. These are a key part of our design. Deck balusters. We need a lot. So these deck balusters are 26 inches wide
so they should work. Let’s not break anything. They should work with two bottles of wine. Oh geez. YAYYY! Ok it does work. Let’s cut some things! First we cut our four walnut pieces to length. We cut these to be about half an inch under
the crown molding so they are about 10 feet tall. We want everything to sit flush against the
wall so I went ahead and measured this baseboard and quarter round with measuring tape and
calipers because I’m fancy to get a general shape, we don’t want to cut into the walnut
so we’re going to try some scrap wood first. What? Oh that was wrong… This is why we test it. Take 2! Perfect, much better. We transferred this shape to the walnut and
got cutting. Hey Katelyn, what time is it? Finish sanding time? Sanding time!!! Merp merp merp! It is time for our favorite part! Ooo. Fancy. So now that all the wood is finished, we have
3 coats of wipe on poly on here, it’s time to drill into our beautifully finished wood. We need to place two of these to act as a
shelf every 6 inches and to mark the spacing between these we made this guide to show us
where to place the marks for each of our shelves. Nice, awesome! So what Evan is doing here is attaching the
feet that come with the deck balusters. So we screw in the feet and then we should
be able to friction fit on the actual rods. Ta da! Now 72 to go. Are you serious? Yeah. Little stand in supervisor today. What do you think? Do we meet quality control? So we’ve done all this prep work, we are ready
to put these up against the wall we just need to join the aluminum balusters and attach
these bracers. So the wood itself is going to hold all the
weight of the wine bottles but just to make sure it does not tip or fall over we’re going
to be adding these brackets right here that will attach the shelves to the wall and make
it strong. Alright guys, now it’s time to put our aluminum
baulistraides? Baulistrais? Baulisters? I think it’s balusters… you start on that
end I’ll start on this end. This is looking legit! Lining this up is going to be fun and interesting. Things are popping out now. Katelyn, lets do this. Dangit. (flashback: we just need to join the aluminum
balusters, we just need to join, we just need to join the aluminum balusters…) Ok let’s think a second. Turns out we just needed to have more patience
and a few clamps. Yep there we go, there we go, stop it, sorry! Oh my gosh it’s so big. The fact that all these marks are lining up
makes me feel really good! Alright, all the anchors are in place, now
it’s time to remove the clamps and enjoy it NOT falling apart. Hey! I thought you were going to give it a victory
shake. (wobble noises) Feel this, oh yeah. This is solid. Woo it’s so tall! Ok, one more. One more. Woo, yay! Look at how tiny Katelyn is next to this! It’s so big! If you like this video and you want to see
more you can go to patreon.com/evanandkatelyn and get our aftershow which is where we talk
about all of the behind the scenes stuff, and there are other things, we give sneak
peeks and previews and stuff like that. Yeah, only because we go off topic! See ya next time, bye!! Since we’re working with aleebuleh. You know the problem… What? Everybody is going to want one. No one else gets one!! Sorry other family! I didn’t say yes, I’m just telling you what’s
going to happen. I know, all the uncles. This is really something.

  1. not to be all critical i have to say it is a beauty. i want one too, but those bars cost way too much in here to make sense with it. probably cheaper to buy long ones and cut them but then you need those plugs whatever they're called.

  2. Hi guys love the friction fit idea, most people would think it would not work, but prof is in the working design. Nice job guys

  3. Very good! Top Shelf you might say.

    I also like that you brought minimal tools but one of them was a jigsaw, my least favorite tool. But you didn't bring a sander… My least favorite task 🙁

  4. That is awesome!! Love the simple clean design!!! Great meeting you guys at the NYC Maker Faire yesterday! I'm sure I was super awkward (Still not great at meeting new people, working on it) but you were both super sweet.

  5. Oh yeah, going with the top hat fancy! They came out so beautifully and fit the spot perfectly! Fabulous job as always! And now I'm off to watch the After Show for some shenanigans!!

  6. What!? No led backlighting!? No glass doors!? What are we savages?
    Jk great job! I love the walnut, it's my favorite wood to work.

  7. This came out so good! I'm impressed to see so many bottles stacked in such a slim vertical space! 🥂 Nice to see the Instructables notebooks in action too! 🤖

  8. lol Seeing your dad's reaction to it was really sweet 💕 and funny, ✨ "Everyone's gonna want one." 😆 I can just imagine your uncles visiting and asking for their own fancy shelves haha

  9. Nice execution, but it doesn't hold very many bottles for the size of it, and it's way too tall, making it impractical at best and as someone else said, possibly too warm up top. Also, with this design, you could have gotten away with only 3 boards, using one in the middle instead of 2.

  10. wait until you get kids. will you still be soooooo happy go lucky. Nope. Just tired, from sleepless nights – yeah. LOL.

  11. First look at the wine rack and my first thought was it’s SO TALL! Oh I get it put the good stuff up top so no one can drink it unless they want a ladder 😂

  12. Hey guy n gal, greetings from the UK, you can get a guide to help you with cutting in trim designs onto the wood. Can send you one if you can't find it.

  13. Swap out that wine for Bundaberg Ginger Beer, Sarsaparilla and Burgundy Cream Soda and I would be a happy man. In fact, I might just build one myself and actually do that lol good video.

  14. Just a heads up for anybody that was interested in something like this for spirits, the higher alcohol will eat the corks.

  15. Hiya Even & Katelyn,
    I am so Hooked.
    I value Your sense of "Team-Spirit"..
    I wish I was wealthy… I would donate every dime I have to support your projects <3
    Such a fabulous grouping of skills, talents, ideas ..etc.. I am quite charmed as I begin to explore More & More of your video's.
    Thank you for all of your hard work, creativity, devotion to teamwork as well as each other & laughter.
    Thank you, For being kind & considerate with each other
    & Lastly,
    for showing us your perseverance & the satisfaction Ultimately gained even in the small stuff "}

  16. It looks great, but they needed more than twice what you guys put together to store all the bottles they had lol.

  17. Did y'all know we have 4 channels now? This main one, plus:

    🎮 Evan and Katelyn Gaming youtube.com/evanandkatelyngaming

    (us playing games and chatting, enhanced by epic editing and a heavy dose of memes)

    🎙️ Evan and Katelyn Podcast youtube.com/evanandkatelynpodcast

    (chatting about life, YouTube stuff, and playing games you can play along with)

    😹 Evan and Katelyn Too youtube.com/evanandkatelyn2

    (still figuring this one out 😂)

  18. Well done , I prefer to buy wooden dowels instead of balusters , witch is cheaper , easier to do and at the end looks similar to the side woods,but what you did is awesome.

  19. Who keeps their wine like that? Savages thats who. Those bottles need to be stored in a climate controlled environment.

  20. Your videos make me sad AND happy, sad because i had a relationship like this, and happy cuz now i know what im looking for in a relationship 🙂

  21. If you added rolling library ladders then it would be easier to reach stuff and it would look cool like a wine library

  22. Temperature too high

    Low hydrometry rate

    Intense light

    Only Americans think that wine can be preserved in this way…
    At the same time, can we talk about "wine" when we talk about the American piquette ?

  23. I am obsessed with this project!! I don’t drink wine but can you imagine vintage and colored bottles with some up lighting or a warm white LED strip hidden on the back of the wood!!!🤔😃 May have to do this one. Thanks once again y’all!! xoxo

  24. This is exactly what I'm looking to build! It's fabulous and simple enough that I feel that I can do it myself! Thank you!

  25. They make a very cheap tool that matches the shape of anything you push it up against (baseboard) so you don't have to guess.
