Pinetti Wine Rack | A See-Through Wine Rack


Tony Potter has been into illusions and magic for almost 20 years when he decided to incorporate that passion with another one- woodworking. Pinetti Wine Rack makes it look like wine bottles vanish while being stored inside the rack.

Pinetti Wine Rack is handmade in Virginia wine country. Each one is made from red oak and is hand finished with Danish Oil.  This wine rack weighs 8 lb 1.1 oz and its dimensions are 8 1/2″ x 18″ x 7 1/2″. When completely full, the wine rack can hold 12 bottles, but only 6 of them can be “hidden”.

Tony Potter designed a wine rack that gives an impression like wine bottles vanish when they’re stored inside the rack.

So, how does the trick work, you may ask? There’s a mirror inside the wine rack positioned at 45-degrees so it reflects the empty side of the rack. If you want to get your friends confused and get the best effect always, use 6 wine bottles, not more.

The trick is in the mirror placed inside it. Pinetti Wine Rack can store twelve bottles of wine while only six look like they disappeared.
