Project completion on a boat is all about prioritizing, right? Well, we enjoy our vino. As such, one fun project Scott did in-betwixt bigger projects while we were still in Ft. Lauderdale was to make a wine rack for our galley. We have a wine "locker" to stow bottles in bulk, but I thought it might be nice to have a place to store open bottles where they'd be easily accessed and safe while underway. I told Scott my idea and showed him where I thought it could be installed, and he immediately got to work designing the rack with some scrap wood, a couple of dowel rods and two brackets. The next day, we had a custom-made wine rack that holds five bottles ready for action. Man do I love being married to a handy man!

A couple of brackets, some press-fit dowel rods,
and some scrap wood and VOILA! Wine rack!
