Create incredible sold wood, or wood and resin wine storage racks with the help of the Crafted Elements collection of wine rack templates. Use this template to create both identically shaped sides of the wine rack. The size bottle openings are 3.75" in diameter.
This wine rack gets the nickname, "The Hexapus" due to its six arms and six bottle capacity.
Once you've used the template to create both sides of the rack, use wood dowels, metal rods, or lengths of wood between them to create a free-standing wine rack. The four smaller holes in the template are 1/2" in diameter and can be used to pocket recessed holes to accommodate the attachment of 1/2" wood dowels if you choose to assemble your bottle rack using dowels.
The Crafted Elements line of laser cut acrylic router templates are precision cut templates designed especially for woodworkers. Unless you have access to a CNC machine in your shop these templates are the easiest, most accurate and most repeatable way to shape wood and wood+resin pieces into things like charcuterie boards, serving trays, handles, functional art and more.
Like our line of maker molds, we designed these templates to save you time and boost production efficiency. These take the guesswork out of shaping and fabricating. By simply pulling one of these clear templates off the shelf and lining it up on your material you’ll instantly know how your final piece will look before you even start cutting and shaping.
We laser cut all of our templates out of long lasting and durable 1/4” thick cast acrylic to ensure the bearing on your router bit has enough surface area to glide on. These templates can be used over and over and will quickly become a go-to tool in your shop.
Reduce errors, inaccuracy and problems with making complex shapes perfectly symmetrical. We even have templates to match many of our awkwardly shaped silicone molds, so you can cut and shape pieces of wood to fit perfectly snug within our molds before you pour your resin.
All you need is a template, flush trim router bit (like this one) and a router table. Even the most basic routers are capable of shaping materials up to 1.5” thick.
Using our templates is easy:
