A little difficult to assemble. You MUST use a mallet. It gets easier as it goes along and is well worth the effort. We use it for wine under a console in my husband's office. Excellent use of space and VERY attractive. Looks like it was meant to be there. Ours is chock full of bottles and is SO STRONG! We highly recommend this product. Just don't worry if you think the pegs might not fit. All it takes is patience and a few targeted swings with the mallet. Very rewarding in so many ways.....

You'd think such a simple product would be easy to manufacture, and would result in consistent production. Not so. It's basically a bunch of pegs and blocks... simple enough, but the holes drilled in the blocks are not at consistent angles... e.g. maybe they have 30 drill presses cranking these things out, but these presses need to be calibrated. I assembled a grid of these, and in one particular row, 6 of 7 blocks were in perfect alignment, but one block was off my more than a half inch because one hole in one block was drilled at a slight angle, and there was no way to connect the necessary peg. Several blocks had holes drilled on only 3 sides (instead of 4) and one block actually had no holes drilled on one end- completely useless.

So looking at the finished construction, one might picture a sort of grid, but some of the points in the grid are off enough so that pegs connect at angles... it does not look like a quality product. In some of the "cells", wine bottles cannot be held because the gap is too wide and they fall through to the cell below. I have 3 such cells in my construction, and my only solution would be to tear apart the whole thing and rebuild it... but then, I might end up with more problems so I refrained.

Other reviews for this product suggest using wood glue, and I cannot agree more. I did not use wood glue; just a rubber mallet to pound the pegs in. Once while moving it I separated a bunch of connections in the middle- big pain!

I ultimately ended up using some wire to hold it together (sort of woven from one end to the other and back) and it is working for now, but I am actively looking for alternative storage solutions. Bordex looks like a good contender.

On the plus side, I used a stepped approach to assembly so it fits under stairs. In other words, the bottom row is 10 wide, the next row up is 9 wide, the next is 8, etc... And I must say the way this is built allows for immense flexibility.

Overall, if you're looking for a quick, cheap, flexible solution, this *might* be a solution for you. Personally, I do not feel confident storing some of my treasures in this rack.

    Comments about Modular 40 Bottle Pine Wine Rack (Mahogany):

    Literally took days to assemble. It isn't straight or square and beyond taking it all apart or trying to force it in place I don't see any other way to make it look like it is supposed to. Extremely disappointed with this product. I would not think twice about returning it if I didn't spend so much time assembling it and had to sand the pegs down to make them fit

    You need both a soft mallet and a small headed hammer to put together. Difficult to get pieces to align perfectly square. I doubt I'd buy again

      modular design is great. mallet is essential to assemble. I had to sand down ends of pegs to get good fit without breaking too many pegs.

        Comments about Modular 40 Bottle Pine Wine Rack (Mahogany):

        I have purchased a similar product previously, so maybe it is that this mahogany style (color anyway) is really just very flimsy, cheap wood that has been stained to hide the poor wood quality. The pegs break off very easily and even crumble. Other products I have purchased from this source have been very reliable in the past.

            I used two orders of this product to customize my everyday wine storage in a closet. Works perfectly and looks attractive. Definitely buy a rubber mallet to put this puppy together. The assembly isn't difficult, but it definitely takes some time. Would definitely purchase again and recommend.

            Owned an older version of this rack. Bought two more and had 3 dowels split when pounding in the pegs. Seems like the harder wood does nothing for strength but splits easier during assembly.
