I read all the reviews at how difficult this was to put together but decided to purchase anyway. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! This is a quality product, sturdy over all good looking. The look is a "tradational modern" (oxy moron, yes!?) and the utility drawer is fabulous - a great place to store the the foil cutter, openers, info on the wines you receive from winerys, etc. OH - when it came to putting it together, I actually drew the "long straw" - my boyfriend assembled it for me. I'm not sure how long it took him but I never heard any complaints! I would highly recommend this wine rack to any others out there looking for a place to store their collection of "juice"!! :)
The wine rack is made of good quality wood. Overall rack is sturdy and good quality. But here are the surprises - + There were parts missing, that I had to call manufacturer. I received it in few days. + Instructions for assembly is very poor and confusing. They can identify parts with small paper stickers, which you have to do by process of elimination. Very tedious to assemble. + After assembly, you see gaps between joints. The parts are not precisely cut. + The wood is unfinished. You need to apply stain or oil. This is a surprise. + Overall product is good. If I have do it again, I would not buy this.

When I first placed my order I was concerned somewhat by the price (based on the photo). While I still think it's a tad pricey (given all the assembly to be done) it is not way overpriced. The wood is good quality and lovely in appearance. It did take quite a bit of time and patience to assemble; I did manage to do with only my two hands and feel that by taking one's time to follow all the instructions it saves much time getting to the finished product. I purchased this large a wine rack as I had twice as many bottles to store as would fit in the counter sized or "more decor than store" style racks. While I was straightening up for guests and putting groceries away I put some other beverage bottles in the rack just to get them out of the way and it has turned out to be a great place to store them until needed (the rack is in the kitchen). I was given a small mixing appliance as a gift and was looking for a place to store it so it would be handy and the drawer in the rack is the perfect spot. This has turned out to be a greater purchase than I imagined.
This is exactly what I was looking for in a wine rack. A lot of storage, sturdy, and look nice. One con is that it took a long time to put together - granted I was using a regular screw driver. There were no instructions included on how to put the drawer together - luckily I've put together many pieces of Ikea furniture together so I was able to figure it out, but it would have been much easier with instructions. In the end, I have a nice piece for my wine storage, a few blisters and black and blues... Worth it.
Beautiful wood workmanship, the only issue was that one of the rear leg supports was incorrectly drilled, so had to reach out to manufacturer to receive new part. Part was received in timely manner, and we had no further issues with wine rack---looks beautiful, and it has wonderful colorations in the wood.
Love this wooden wine rack. I stained it to match my dining room furniture and it looks amazing. I had a wire rack from **** *** ******* but replaced it with this one and its a huge improvement. The assembly was a little bit challenging for me but my husband helped me and we put it together in one afternoon. If you're looking for a quality, sturdy and good looking wine rack, this is the one.
I'm new to collecting wine. So wanted start with something small to hold a couple different wines.36 was perfect number, allowing me to buy a different wine for each row. Also very solid wood. I will leave it natural for now but can stain wood.later.
Ordered this rack to fit in a small space and it worked great. Had planned on putting a dark finish on it, but the natural finish it came in worked just fine. Would buy this again. Price was good. It is quite sturdy and easy to assemble. Arrived in a timely manner, so I have no complaints.
High quality wine rack made from solid wood pieces (no composite wood or veneers). Took me a while to put together but not too hard...instructions are pretty clear and all you need is a flat-head and Phillips screwdriver. I like the small drawer which will hold wine openers, corks, etc.
The product was reasonably priced and shipped promptly. While I was assembling the wine rack I found that one of the racks was chipped. I called the manufacturer and requested a replacement part. The person answering the telephone call was knowledgeable and very courteous. The replacement part was received a few days later and I am very satisfied with the product and the manufacturer.
Purchased this wine rack after reading all the reviews. Slightly scared by all the comments about putting it together. Have to tell you....there was only one error made and it was all my doing. This wine rack is excellent quality and I love the drawer to hold my bottle openers and toppers. I've had many raves about it from friends. So glad I got mine through here. LOVE IT!
This unit takes some assembly. Just take your time and organize the material. The instructions are adequate, but you do have to read them. I liked the quality of the wood and materials. The design of the wine rack is quite good and it is quite strong. As long as you take your time and read the instructions and follow the instructions there should be no problems encountered.

First of all, the wine rack arrived much sooner than we expected to our great surprise. We did buy the special oil they recommend and applied it to all of the pieces and let dry before we assembled it. We found that it did take two people for some of the assembly but it went together very well. It is a beautiful piece, very well designed and holds 36 bottles of wine. Plenty of shelves so that you can separate the reds and whites easily to make selection much quicker, it also has a drawer on top for wine opener, brochures on wines. We are very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone interested. Thank you for such prompt service.
