Purchased rack to hold my really good wine - out of sight. Located it inside an existing cabinet. Exactly what I wanted. The unit is heavy enough to be stable without permanently attaching to cabinet. Finish is smooth and bottles load and unload easily.
These are pretty sturdy when locked together, but if you want complete piece of mind, you may want to glue them. They are not designed to accommodate - barely, 1.5 liter bottles in the lower rack, as you slide them in and out they require the upper rack to lift. If I glue them I won't be able to get the 1.5 liters in between the rails as they go in and out. Once in, there aren't any fit issues. The upper rack is fine. The dimensions were right for what I needed. I like that they are stackable if I ever decide to buy another set, but if they had added perhaps a quarter of an inch to the height there would be no fit issues, I may experiment with gluing them with some shims if I need the space. Seems like the people who invent these designs don't think to check things like this. If you have only normal size wine bottles, I think you will like the rack.
Constructed of solid wood, it was well-built with some weight to it. Color & finish is smooth & coated. Easy to set up and functions to hold many bottles of wine. Unfortunately, the size did not work out and I do wish the manufacturers would make them in different sizes to fit my kitchen countertop.
The OceanStar wine rack consists of a bunch of heavy, nicely finished pieces of wood - and that's it. You put it together by fitting the long pieces into notches on the side ends. It initially doesn't seem that stable but when you put it all together and then add in the wine, the weight seems to keep everything in place. We got two and they also seem fine stacked on top of each other. I wouldn't stack these too far up and would definitely keep them in an area like against a wall where they won't be jostled that much, but overall it's a relatively compact and attractive solution that can hold a lot of bottles of wine. And it assembles in less than 5 minutes!
I bought one set but once I saw how sturdy they were and VERY MUCH worth the price I ordered a second set. Definitely would recommend this product for quality, versatility, and price. I searched a lot of places and this wine racking system was by far the BEST!!!!
