In ‘93 I was on a major building streak of furniture for our home. To compliment the dining area I built a wine cabinet to hold up to 60 bottles. Nice idea but not really practical when living in the desert southwest.
Now in ‘15 my wife decided that, since we had a small wine fridge, we needed to re-purpose the cabinet to be now an overflow cabinet for the china and crystal sideboard. Now many years ago I made this with idea of removable racks in case of something like this happening.
I removed the racks and the pegs I’d used for them to hang, refinished inside and out, installed lights and plate glass shelves.
An interesting part is, as I was dissecting this piece, I was able to see how my work has changed since the initial build. I don’t do face framing as much and have really used mortise and tenor much much more since. Overall, I really enjoyed this short project. Like visiting an old friend after many years.
