I had read the reviews before buying and was concerned abt. commments that they are hard to erect and about limitation on bottle size, but the comments did not have details. I bought 6 for use on one side of a new cellar, and I would then decide after erecting them if could use more. I now will buy three more, but not 6. I am making my own racks to hold larger wine bottles.

1. This rack holds 3.25" inch bottles side-by-side with no difficulty. Bordeaux/Cab bottles are 3.00. Most Pinot and Syrah bottles are 3.00 or 3.25, and also fit nicely. Many newer "better" Pinots and Syrahs, however, are larger (some up to 3.5") and they will not fit unless you alternate them side-by-side with 3.00" bottles. (Turley will not fit at all, unless you leave every other slot empty.)

2. I was pleasantly surprised to find that when erecting 2 racks side-by-side, you make double use of the middle upright. Thus, one rack is 35" wide, but 2 racks are only 67" wide, and each additional rack adds only another 32". I wish this info had been in catalogue and/or website so I knew it before I bought my racks; I would have laid out my cellar much differently.

3. Many people commented that the racks were hard to assemble. Getting the first (bottom) shelf bolted into four loose uprights was awkward and using two people would have helped. After that, however, it was pretty easy. (Trick: Do not tighten the grommets very much until all horizontal racks are in, then go back, check for plmb and tighten them. Also, instructions suggest waiting a week and then tightening them again. Good idea. Several needed a full turn or so to be tight again.)

4. Mine are very sturdy because I left off the back cross-brace supports and bolted the tops into studs with lag bolts. Cannot speak to free-standing application.

5. Person at WE told me that they could be used as double depth racks. They COULD, but I would not recommend it. The grommets stick out a little in front of the uprights, and thus you cannot get the front upright of the back rack and the back upright of the front rack flush -- so they would not secured together without a lot of work and they would not look well.

Great Rack Design, Poor Quality Control

Exactly what I was looking for - high bottle capacity, compact, stylish, economical, and sturdy.

CAUTION: IMPOSSIBLE TO ASSEMBLE without first using a disc sander to taper the ends...Read complete review

Exactly what I was looking for - high bottle capacity, compact, stylish, economical, and sturdy.

CAUTION: IMPOSSIBLE TO ASSEMBLE without first using a disc sander to taper the ends of the shelf rails. Shelf rails would NOT fit into the grooves in the vertical rails without modification. Good design - poor quality control. Avoid this rack if you are easily frustrated!

Since I was planning to mod the rack anyway, this problem did not cause me to return the product. I bought it intending to cut it into two 63 bottle racks. That worked well, and I am now very satisfied - and highly organized.

Comments about Swedish Pine 126 Bottle Wine Rack (Natural):

This wine rack is clearly one of the best deals I've come across. I am extremely pleased with it, so much so, I am ordering 4 more. If additional support is desired, it is helpful to apply brackets from the back of the unit to a wall stud, (discreetly.)

      Comments about Swedish 126 Bottle Wine Rack (Natural):

      Just finished assembling eight of these kits in natural color for my cellar. This is a truly outstanding product: (1) the quality of wood is extremely good and also very consistent (across 8 cartons no less) - not a SINGLE bad or broken piece either out of the box or during installation; (2) assembly could not possibly be easier (all the instructions are on a single 8.5x11 page, there are only about 5 steps to put the whole thing together (time to assemble and mount to wall 8 racks = 10 hours); (3) these racks are VERY sturdy when assembled, especially when you interconnect.

      None of the things that I worried could go wrong went wrong - the wood was consistent and perfect and didn't break, the job was easy and the end product is very practical and very attractive. I am SO glad I read all the reviews and particularly, that I read the reviews on some of the more "custom" and more expensive racks here and settled with this one because I experienced none of the problems widely reported with the other racking systems.

      If I can offer any tips: (1) the racking shelves are to be inserted FROM THE TOP using the grooves to guide them down from top to bottom, not snapped in diagonally which is POSSIBLE but could break the wood (I point this out because if there is any part of the written instructions which is not clear, this is it); (2) definitely see other reviews re. combining multiple racks, the dimensions will be different because you use one middle upright for the rack both on the left and right; what that other review doesn't say is that you can ALSO play with the ends, using either the inner or outer threading holes to achieve slight variations in width from 32-35" (compressing down to 32" will get rid of one row of capacity) - this was helpful to me for purposes of "fine tuning" to my cellar's dimensions.

      Final remark, I choked up on the shipping ($480 for 8 racks) - but honestly, these are HUGE (three large carttons per rack) and probably that is what they spent. At least it came promptly!

      Great product - I am extremely happy and highly recommend.

      The wood from Indonesia does not look like pine. It is seems harder, is knot free and well cut. The grommets that hold the shelf supports are chromed. The rack looks better than the on-line picture. Assembly took an hour and a half without assistance.

              I now have 10 Swedish Wine Racks in my wine cellar. On 2 different walls I have combined 4 racks together to create a wall storage space. These units are made more stable by screwing brackets from the rack to the wall. Applied discreetly, one can't see the brackets when the rack is being used.

                This was easy to assemble and had my husband read the directions first, it would have taken him about 30 minutes to assemble instead of the 2 hours he wasted by not reading the directions! Also, we found that it is a very tight fit for Burgundy bottles and had to lay them in opposite directions in order to have them lay side by side.

                Product is good - shipping and service were tough for us.

                We purchased 8 units weighing ~500 pounds total in mahogany, and arrived on 2 pallets. For a residence, this was tough for us to move around but the delivery person was kind enough to put the pallets in our garage. Took us about 4+ hours to assemble - I don't think 1 person could do it on their own. Unfortunately we ended up realizing a box was missing, which contained 8 shelves. Customer service was closed for a holiday, and so we got the final box delivered to us about a week later.
                I would recommend the racks themselves, but be sure you can handle the quantity that you purchase in terms of delivery and assembly.

                great storage space, needs anchoring to wall for safety
