It takes a pretty forceful impact to break a filled bottle of wine,
Jose. I've dropped a few filled bottles over the years onto concrete
floors and (knock wood) only one has ever broken. Most just bounce. Of
course, I would not recommend trying that trick with any bottle you
valued, but the point is that just a casual impact from another bottle
won't do much of anything to a filled bottle of wine.
The crossbars run parallel to the wine bottle, so there's no way to bang
one against one another. The horizontals space the verticals such that
they all have the same spacing, which in my case is 3.5"
I did this about 4 years ago and used Western Red Cedar. Then I read an
article on wine rack construction that said DON'T USE AN AROMATIC WOOD...
get's into the wine, etc. Well after 6 months the "aroma" was gone and no
wine has been ruined. Not that I have a lot of expensive wine anyway...
maybe a mixed case of some "keepers".
I have room for about 17 cases of wine... all racked. I did the
11-horizontal, one-on-an angle thingee for display.
Cost.... maybe $100.
The magazine "The Wood Spectator" did a long piece on the best woods to use
for home storage, They preferred wood from organically raised trees which
were free range too. Even more preferable were trees bred in a pure oxygen
environment, infused with free range chicken fat.
