This is a cherry wine cabinet that I made using a plan from Wood’s Oct 2006 issue. It’s made from cherry and cherry plywood. I was afraid to stain it, so I just put a clear satin finish on it.

Great work! It’s an elegant, straightforward design. The cherry looks beautiful without any stain, and will darken over time.

I saw this in that issue it is on my list to make. I like the idea of not staining, cherry by it self is a beautiful wood.

Beautiful wine cabinet. Good choice, in my opinion, not using stain – let the wood speak for itself.

A na SHINARP Chelu!!!

Now when can I come over and drink some of that wine?! I’ll bring the short ribs.

Seriously though, that is a pretty sharp looking piece.

P.S. Let me know if you ever need anything laser engraved.

It looks great. I’ve got ‘building a wine cabinet’ on my long list of projects. One like this would be just the ticket.

I was going to ask if you made it from plans but I see RAH says “I saw this in that issue”. What issue of what magazine would that be?

This is real nice. And you were right not to stain it. I have an antique dresser that is a combination of cherry/spruce (local farmer made) and the cherry is almost black with age.

Same here. Naturally-aged cherry has a color that can’t be duplicated any way except time.

I almost suggested a couple of coats of orange shellac, but then realized you’d probably be opening and pouring wine on top—that would have been dumb.

These are a really neat idea. I have a corner that would sit one just perfect. Nice job!
