This wine storage is fashioned from West Australian Jarrah.
3.0 Meters wide 2.8 meters high 500mm deep at the cabinet level, 400 mm deep at the wine rack.
Will hold 600 + bottles + 24 cartons in the cabinet. I had to get an engineer to certify that the floor
would support the piece. It did. finished with Wipe-on Poly.

Top Job. Jarrah is such a nice timber. Is the shelving sloped back to keep the bottles in?

that is a wonderful wine rack

Jarrah is wonderful local wood for me but is becoming harder and harder to find decent bits of timber how did you score so much of it

one small question the doors are very wide ( and i know that jarrah is a heavy wood) are two concealed hinges enough to carry the weight

The only thing that could make it look better is if it were full of wine.

velo_tom, you took the words right out of my fingers. “Great, but where’s the wine? Beautiful cabinet, beautiful work.

Beautiful work, and beautiful wood…one of the very few Eucalyptus species I have worked with on my lathe. Most of the Eucalyptus here in the states is not even good firewood. I have not had the pleasure of working with this lumber as it would be cost prohibitive here.

Now my next question is where will all that wine come from? Do you have a vinyard? Even living here in “wine country” USA, I could never fill those shelves…course I am not a collector or a connoisseur by any means.

Wow. I can’t imagine how many construction hours there was; let alone discern how long it will take to find the 600 bottles; or how many friends you have to help you consume the wine.

A great job, should be published in the Australian wood magazines!

Beautiful. Is it for yourself or a client. Gonna take a while to fill it but should be a great time trying to empty it.

Ok well done
A very good job but dear Steevo I have just one question ( From France !) Where is the wine ?

I can’t imagine a so beautiful rack without wine

Where is the wine ? Sorry to insist but where is the wine ?

Have a nice day and a good wines
