Speaking of wine racks, I noticed an interesting post over on Lifehacker today about a DIY wine rack made from recycled cardboard mailing tubes. All you need is a utility knife and a ruler to make this project from materials most of us have laying around. A great idea and unique use of discarded materials.
Support recycling and raise a glass to frugal wine storage at the same time.

Coo-ol. I have used styrofoam tubes but not anywhere that is visible, since they are definitely not as aesthetically pleasing as the craft-paper variety. This would be great in a loft apartment!

Excellent option – a little classier than just plopping the cardboard box with the wine seperators in it on its side. Could look great in a college dorm room if the tubes were spray painted black.
I like the idea because it is cheap. Yet this would only be temp storage.. Card bored itself in the proper humidity could be bad news. Like it but don’t think you could use it for long term storage.
