Yes.
Next I suppose you want plans. Try this. http://members.bellatlantic.net/~vze2nwp6/plans/wine.htm
If those don't suit, maybe one of these will. http://www.sundogcompany.com/wineholders.html

No, not really. Just make sure that the corks stay wet, and you can read the labels without disturbing the wine. Tom > ragged snipped-for-privacy@hotmail.com (Fats) wrote:

Hi Fats:
I have created a simple, inexpenseive and expandable wine rack system. It's note wood, but . . .
Materials needed: 4" rigid drain line (white outside/black inside) ~$4.00/10ft length 11 small (~4-6") cable ties / 10ft of drain line (1 section of drail line is enough material for 11 slots in the wine rack)
Tools Needed: Saw (I used a chop saw, but a hand saw and/or sharp utility knife would also work) Utility knife Drill Motor & 1/4" drill bit
Misc Needed: Fine Sand Paper Soap & Water Newspaper Paper Pencil Paper Punch
Cut Tubes to length: Use the saw to cut the drain line into 10" sections. I used a crop-saw with a stop block. Create hole-guide template: Cut a piece of newspaper approximately 2" wide. Wrap the paper around the tube and mark where it overlaps (length will equal the outside perimiter of the tube.) Fold this in half and mark the mid point. Punch a hole ~1" in from the edge of the paper at the mid and end points. Mark Straight line: on the length of the tube: Draw the line roughly 2" long on each end (use a right angle & straight edge, such as the fence of a table saw, to get a straigh line ie: |o ) Mark Dill points on the tube: Using the hole guide, the two points on each end of the tubes. Be sure to align the drill guide with the striaght line. This will ensure that the holes are opposite of each other. Drill Holes: Drill the four holes on each tube. Since the holes are larger than the cable ties, absolute accuracy is not important. Sand and Clean Tubes: Lightly sand the ends of each tube to remove sharp edges and saw marks. Also clean up holes. (Utility knife is also an option to clean up rought saw cuts and drill flashing.) Group Tubes: Attached tubes together with cable ties to create a singe row of tubes the desired length. (ie: OOOOO) Be sure that the large end of the cable tie ends-up on the outside wall of the connected tubes. Trim excess cable tie material. Stack Rows of Tubes: Stack groups of tubes and fill with desired beverages!

Alrighty, then. That covers the storage needs for your wife's bottles of Chateau Lafite Rothschild wines, but what about the $7 bag of wine-in-a-box you took home last night? How do you store multiples of those?

What kind of rigid drain pipe are you talking about? I have never seen white outside/black inside. And cut it with a utility knife? Not the PVC I have seen. And, why not just glue the pipes together? And, are you using 12" chop saw?

I used a 10 in. chop saw and rotated the pipe a little. I used the thin wall stuff. I built a frame with doors and have 16 sections to a row and 8 rows high. I put a dab of PC glue at the points where the pipe touched each other. Have it filled up with fig, blackberry, blueberry and Norton grape wine.

The Drian pipe is not the solid PVC. It is sort-of corrigated and comes in 2 versions. One with holes drilled ~ 6" apart, one without the doles.
As far as the cutting, a box cutter would work, but I used a 10" chop saw and did a little rotating action to complete the cut. I also used the utility knife to clean up some of the rough edges.
One could glue the pieves together, but this way it was more modular.
I hope that helps.
Cheers!

Use your imagination. Why do you need a plan?
