What would you do if your parent asked for something very specific for Christmas -- but also something relatively boring? Well, when that happened to this enterprising builder, he decided to take her request up a notch. The DIY results of his efforts are totally awesome. Here's the story in his own words:
"When my mom came to me asking for a wine rack my answer was always going to be yes. Being a Journeyman cabinet maker I enjoy every chance I get to be creative and make out of the ordinary pieces of furniture. My only guideline was that it needed to hold at least 8 bottles. The rest was up to me."
He then dedicated months to finishing the project in time for Christmas.
"I worked on it after work when I could, maybe an hour at a time. I'd say I put about 30 hours into it. Material costs will vary but I spent about $150 (keep in mind I used a lot of offcuts from around the shop I work at so not all the materials were purchased from the store)."
