I purchased the 40-bottle version and put together a 5x5-bottle rack. Fits perfectly under a bottom shelf in my pantry. I intend to use the rest for another rack in our cabin. Assembly was simple, took about 45 minutes. I used a hard plastic mallet rather than rubber. I recommend NOT using glue. If you do, there will be no way to square it up at the very end if needed. Mine was quite square and didn't appear to need it. Nevertheless, I still turned it on each side and beat on the ends to ensure all pegs were firmly seated. Excellent product.

We bought three 40-bottle units and took their advise to glue for stability resulting in what seemed to be a never ending project. Each dowl rod had to be crimped on both ends before inserting in hole with drop of glue. It ended up taking several days to complete the project. The end result is fine, it is functional and appears to be stable. In retrospect I would have spent more for less effort.

The instructions are easy to follow and the wine rack was easily assembled. CAUTIION: The pegs may seem tight, but can work loose through the weight of the wine bottles. I stocked my assembled rack with several bottles and left it undisturbed for two weeks........the sound of glass hitting glass had us rushing into the storage room. Luckily we caught the bottles just in time. Do not assemble without using PLENTY of wood glue. I haven't rebuilt my rack using additional glue yet.
A rubber mallet and a little time are all that's required to assemble this tinker-toy rack. It's very heavy and extremely sturdy. I used a little glue on the side-to-side joints; gravity does the trick on the rest. An excellent option for the money.
