This is my first real woodworking project since I got my table saw for Christmass. Yes 6 months to make a wine rack is a long time. My wife and I have been doing some major rennovations to our house removing entire rooms installing an entier kitchen from scratch, etc. On top of all this the brakes were applied hard 2 days before I took ownership of the table saw. My daughter was born. Having a daughter that is 2 days older than your saw will slow any woodworker down at leas for a couple of years.
The wine rack is designed to fit snugly inside the buffet it is sitting on and will hold over 2 cases of wine. I’ll have a photo later once the finish has had a chance to fully dry. The piece is made from Poplar. The Dados and Rabbets were machine cut and the slots for the horizontical bars were hand cut. I wanted to hand cut them to get a feel for the difficlut of hand cut dovetails. They could be tighter but I don’t think its bad for a first attempt
