building racks for wine storage with big frank

Took a Friday afternoon with my father, to throw together a wine rack for the basement.  Frank has all the carpentry skills which he developed over many grueling childhood years working with his father and brother.  It only took about 4 hours with a few breaks in between.  A 42 bottle wine rack made with pine...

It all starts with this legendary table saw passed down from my grandfather Americo.
Along with some modern tools like this Porter Cable nail gun.
The nails load in like a clip of ammo going into an AK47.

Setting up the ''jig'', which will make sure all the shelves are exactly the same distance apart.
Spacing the separators.
Big frank matching the shelves to the fram.
A finished product, A total savings of $120, compared with ordering wine racks online.
