Wine Glass Stemware Holders For Under Bar or Kitchen Cabinets

February 28th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

There are many different styles of wine glass holders designed to be installed under cabinets. Some stemware racks do not need to be altered and others do. The grooved slats are available in many different finishes and sizes. Usually the process of attaching them to the bottom of a bar or kitchen cupboard involves securing them with a couple of screws.

Important to Know:
Many of the oak, maple, walnut, cherry or poplar wood holders are unfinished. You may need to get some polyurethane clear-coat or Minwax.

There are also different sized bases on wine glasses. Some of the customer reviews on Amazon reported that the grooves were too small for their wine glass bases.

Here are a few different materials types they are made of:

How To Install Under Cabinet Wine Glass Holders

The design you purchase will determine what steps are involved in the installation process.

  1. Cut the holder to size with the saber/jig saw if necessary
  2. Hold it under the cabinet and mark where it will be permanently attached to the bottom of the kitchen upper cabinet
  3. Pre drill the stemware rack if necessary.
  4. Hold the item under the cupboard again and mark the screw locations with a pencil
  5. Screw the screws into the upper cabinet bottom without the rack in place first
  6. Have a helper hold the wine glass holder in place or use clamps
  7. Gently secure it with the screws
  8. Finalize the tightening with a hand screwdriver

Words of Caution:
If you are hanging acrylic or real hardwood models, be extra careful to not over tighten the screws. Both of these materials can split rather easily if too much pressure is applied.

It’s really a simple process to install a wine glass holder designed for under kitchen or bar upper- wall cabinets. They can add flare, beauty and elegance to your entertainment area.
