DIY Wine Carrier Free Plans

diy wine carrier with free plans

Handmade gifts are the best and I'm a huge fan of making something rather than buying so today I'm sharing this DIY wine carrier project plan.  It's nothing new or really that creative but it's a simple project that nearly anyone can complete in under an hour.

This wine carrier holds two bottles just perfectly.  A 1x4 board just happens to be the exact width you need to fit a bottle of wine!

I finished this wine carrier with Rustoleum's weathered grey stain then clear semi-gloss polyurethane.
