The build has started. So far, one carcass assembly has been completed with the section for the bar fridge and the built in wine bottle holder. This is constructed out of 3/4” birch ply and all edging will be done with solid birch. One addition I need to make to the wine holder is to put some type of bottle holder (for lack of a better way to put it) in the middle of each cubby to ensure the bottle stays centered. Probably overkill but I like symmetry and if it was mine and the bottles rolled to the side of the cubby, it would annoy me. I’m thinking of a couple of triangluar strips spaced about 1.5” apart running from front to back of each cubby. Almost a v shape to cradle each bottle. We’ll see.
Next is to get teh second carcass completed, hopefully in the next few days. Originally I had intended to have teh bar done before Christmas but that’s not going to happen. I still have two gifts to build – a serving tray and simple wine bottle holder to hang on the wall. Now I know how Santa feels being busy this time of year.
Thanks for looking!
