Even those who aren't wine connoisseurs appreciate an eye-catching way to show those bottles off. This wine rack from Robert Hendrick of Railyard Studios will do the trick.

All the materials have been salvaged from the railroad built in 1908 by the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad Company. The hickory cross tie is embedded with 16 pieces of rail, so the rack holds eight bottles.

Shopping for someone more into skiing than railroads? Uncommon Goods also has a wine rack made from upcycled skis. (Rail Yard Wine Rack, $995)
