For your San Diego wine cellar I assume?

I feel your pain. I hate such repetitive tasks. They’re mind numbing and I’m more prone to make errors. My OCD approach is to take my final count I have to do and do mental milestones. 5%, 20%...

Mass production pays, but it’s really boring.

Yes, SD job.

I just keep saying could have been worse, there could have been 800 sticks… lol

Here is the Sketchup presentation.

No, not to me. I enjoy it all, even the sanding part.

Plus I would rather have a 35,000 job over 10- 3,000 jobs.

Getting a visual for one of the sections, (just hastily clamped together).

Well done, jbay! Very sharp looking bottle rack. It’ll look even better after it’s finished, installed and loaded with wine bottles.

Thank You Don.

I’m starting the Bottle Storage Cabinet

Pulled one of the inside pieces out of the sketchup drawing to get the dimensions.


I have to cut 36.8 and 53.2 degree angles on both ends.
The 36.8’s are easy enough to cut laying flat,
But have to cut the 53.2 cuts standing up. (Saw still set at 36.8)
I didn’t want the piece to fall into the throat plate so I made a block to ride like a sled and clamped the side pieces to it to hold it up after the cut was made. Had 12 of them to do.

Hopefully the pieces will fit into the box, (I haven’t built it yet)
Some people might say that’s putting the cart before the horse, but I have confidence with sketchup,
I’ll know tomorrow.

Well, I got to say it’s pretty discouraging.

I try to participate to keep the troll callers off me, but I don’t see the point.

It’s just not worth me taking my time, so there won’t be any more follow up on this, and I doubt I will post anything as a project when I’m finished as well.

Please consider this topic closed!

I guess I didn’t realize how quiet I was being. It’s definitely not like me :) I recall our initial exchange for your SketchUp view of the concept, and your suggestion it could work for doors (more on that later). Anyway, it’s awesome work, and the sheer scope of it is pretty amazing. Oh, and I was coveting your shop space.

I was really in awe of the SketchUp video and renderings and going back and forth between what you’ve built and the design. I have Pro now and really need to get up to speed on some of that. I mainly got it to support dynamic components since so much of my work is same-thing-different-size.

For those doors, I mentioned the room was just framed in when I got there, so nothing to put a virtual door into. Ultimately, they have gone so far over budget they’re throwing in the $40 HD special hollow core instead of something nice.

Hmm, I am not one to frequent blogs. So my bad for not checking your activity. That being said what a project!! If this were my project I estimate time of completion to be somewhere around 2030 ish…

LOL

Looks good, do post a finished project, who cares about views, comments etc etc. Let your friends see and make comments, these are the ones that count.

Impressive doors!!! I had wanted to do something along these lines with pocket doors to what once was my basement office. Got overridden by ex and landed up putting in french doors. This would have been much more impressive. May have to revisit the french door thing and do some renovating.
