Dimitris – beautiful marquetry work. I have done grapes before, but not as many bunches as your project, so I can picture the stacks of taped packets of grapes waiting to be cut into the background. Can you give some details – do you use a donkey and hand cut, or double bevel work with a scroll saw? What is the substrate material for holding the wine bottles? Baltic Birch ply?The casework design has very fine lines, I would be a little worried about 300 full bottles of wine in it, as the bottom ” X ” shaped section in each of the side columns, will feel the weight of all above it, and the cross bracing will act like a automotive scissor jack to want to push the sides of the case outwards.
