Just about ready to start the finish work.
Thought I would share the pics while the unit is dry fitted together with clamps.
This will be going in a beach house so there is a little bit of a sea shell theme going on.
Knotty Alder Material
Holds about 275 bottles.

Nice work jbay. Looks like it would hold more than 275 bottles to me, mine is half that size and holds ~250.

Wow Jay. Really beautiful composition. Is it your design or did you work off of shop drawings from an architect?

Thank You All,

Rich, just a cabinet maker…talented…maybe a little, master craftsman, not even. lol (but thanks)

TungOil, That’s about it. There is a lot of wasted space.
There is a place for about 15 Magnum size bottles though..

Bill, I designed it, but took into consideration the wants/needs of the client.

Tony, it’s Knotty Alder. (solid and plywood)

Thanks ralbuck…

Tony, Seeing all the fine “Master” craftsmanship here (yourself included),
I will just have to accept “descent cabinet maker”

Except for when I move to Canada and come and work for you,
then I will expect to be paid Master Craftsman wages :) lol
