This was a project for my wife’s friend who saw a picture of this in a magazine and brought it to me to make for her. I got some experience making these curved feet and the fluting for the front of the legs. Then I had to figure out the layout of the cross supports to get the maximum number of bottles in it. I had a hard time finding short full extension drawer slides for the 3 drawers but they where at a site on line. The 3rd picture is what I got to work from. I had no dimensions to start with.

Nicely done. It has the elegance of an older piece of furniture.

The wine rack is superb.

A question about the latice work holding the bottles.
Did you use half lap joints at the intersections?
Or are they just overlapped?

If you charged your wifes friend for the work and materials would you be so kind as to share it with us?
If you dont want to post it, could you PM me with the info?

I ask, because I have 5 different wine cabinets being built, and are all in various stages of production.
But one of the things i have been wrestling with is what to charge.

Thanks for posting

Hi daveintexas. The lattice work on the wine cosole is done with half lap of 3/4” square stock. I have my Craftsman radial arm saw always set up with a wobble dado and I have a lot of gaging made for stops for doing such work.

I do charge my wife’s freinds for the pieces I make for them. They dont expect them to be gifts because they are ordering them and usually they can’t get them anywhere else. I’m more than fair. I really like the challenge of the designing and making one piece like that. Making two or more becomes work I usuallyl make one of a kind stuff
As for the pricing , send me a private E mail at jcj7815@att.net and I can fill you in what I charge.

Thanks,Jim
