Liquor Cabinet

I was inspired to make this piece by a tobacco cabinet I saw on this site. Since I do not do tobacco I decided to make it into a liquor cabinet. The top shelf is for wine bottles while the main compartment will hold the alcohol. I will be making a custom built rack to be installed in the main compartment to hold various size glasses. This unit will be hung on the wall with french cleats and I will further be installing wine glass racks on the bottom of the unit once I build them. Made from walnut & alder.

Nice looking cabinet Nicky .
I love the colour and the hardware looks great
This design maybe a bit larger would make a nice tool cabinet for the shop also .

This is an amazingly useful item for so many of us. I too really like the hard ware. So where do you hide the key?

Great looking liquor cabinet! I love how the front and doors make it look like a carriage house!

Very nicely crafted. I particularly like the way you burned your “signature” in the front side of the drawers.

I think that must’ve been my tobacco cabinet that so inspired you, so I’m genuinely flattered. Tobacco and liquor pair well together, so our cabinets would be great side by side. Cool hasp too.
