Ride around Wine Glass Rack

Materials: Förhöja and two pieces of Lämplig

Description: I had some empty space in my kitchen and was looking for both some storage space as well as a wine glass rack. Since regular stores couldn’t supply this for me I decided to hack one myself.

The hack is simple but elegant. Starting with a Förhöja kitchen cart I added a wooden bar on the upper inside.

After that I prepared two Lämplig trivets and cut of all the rods at the end including the right-angled rod. This created the perfect ‘rack’ for the wine glasses. Since the cut-off rods are hollow, I push some gray caps in the holes

On the bar in the Förhöja kitchen cart I screwed the base-holders. The Lämplig trivets are placed in these ‘sockets’. Since these holders are not firm enough, I also screwed on a u shaped metal holder from my local hardware store.

The result is simple, but very effective wine glass holders which also looks great in my kitchen.

    Nice.. Looks like it holds about 20 glasses? Very cool!

  2. Extremely delayed reply, but the end caps are caps that normally are used to cover screws. These caps lay around in a box somewhere in my house, so I have no idea where you can buy these as loose parts.

    Chris, where did you find the end caps?

    I wouldn’t recommend a handsaw. First of all it is gonna take you some time, secondly the bars are more prone to bend as they only rest on 1 right-angled bar. I did this myself using a dremel rotary tool, needing 2 cutting blades.

    You’re kidding! I was trolling the Ikea site this last week looking for something to hack an upside-down wine glass rack from!
    If you don’t mind me asking; how’d you cut off the one end? I only have a hand saw, would that do the trick?
