I have a tall, narrow alcove in my home where I would like to recreate a single "plank" of this wine rack (apologies for bad lighting, was in a dark restaurant):
I will very likely have a local woodworking shop tackle this, but I'm interested to know how the ovular holes in the outer plank were created, as well as how they ensured that the necks of the wine bottles went through the backing supports at the proper angle. Is this something that should easy to recreate for any professional woodworking shop? Are there similar plans available someplace?
Also, I know it is probably difficult to tell from this picture, but can anyone take an educated guess at what sort of wood the front planks are?
