A Stemware rack underneath a high kitchen cabinet we use as the liquor cabinet. The cabinet bottom was always bowing a little uncomfortably for my taste (because we keep too much liquor on hand is obviously not the problem), so I thought I could stiffen it with a few rails running left/right, but that of course would look silly, so I disguised it as a stemware rack.
Materials are all Red Oak, salvaged from a lumber pile that the previous homeowners left behind from their DIY kitchen remodel. The lumber was quite weathered and grimy, but a quick trip through the planer and sure enough, there was still wood underneath there. Add some Minwax Provincial stain and a dust of spray lacquer, and it seamlessly looks like it was part of the original kitchen remodel. And it straightened and stiffened the shelf as expected. We’ll call that a win.
Apologies or the poor photographs. I need far more project photography practice.
Thanks for taking a look!
