Preface:
I am able to obtain Cello instruments that no longer produce acceptable sound. I make wine racks utilizing them, and other reclaimed materials as much as possible. I have donated them to Orchestras to be used in fundraising. I have completed two, and am in the process of making another one. When I send photos they will show two completed Cello Wine Racks and sections of another.
Description:
The Cello Wine Rack is actually three projects joined together with “pipe fittings.”
Measurements are taken of wine bottles, wine glasses and the face of the cello. Calculations are made to determine the size of the wine rack.
The wine rack is made from reclaimed oak from the sides of drawers, poplar, and a metal glass holder. The woods used for the depth are oak and poplar joined with biscuits (reduces cost). The oak is in the front. The seam is hidden by the body of the cello.
When the rack is completed it is placed on template paper and an outline is made. This template is used to mark the cello to cut openings for the rack. This is done carefully because the back cutout is mounted to the back of the rack.
A cello stand is made (using plans from the internet). It is modified to accept the rack. Legs are added.
The cello comes with a hole in the middle of the bottom. A hole is made in the middle of the stand bottom. An elongated hole (from front to back) is made in the bottom of the rack. This is for adjusting the rack and connecting everything with the pipe fittings.
Everything is stained, shellacked, and polished before assembly.
Bottle stoppers are used as functional and decorative “pegs.”
The wine glasses are from tasting at local wineries.

  • Very cool idea. Too bad I have zero musical talent. Luckily I do like wine.
