This came really great. Love the design. The only thing I would like to see incorporated is some type of draw/tray for corkscrews and the like. Great job.

Is the top fastened to the bottom?
Will there be 3-glass racks, or just one, with the other two cubbies built to hold wine?
Will you have one long top so that it appears more like 1-unit?
I’ll be anxious to see the final product!

In the unit for her, there will be 6 cubes. The bottom left and right will be for wine. The upper left and right will be glass holders. My thought is to make the center cubes 6 or 7 inches wider. Her thought is to have a drawer in the upper middle cube and the middle lower to have doors. Yes, the top will be one long top. Thanks for the great comments.

That makes sense.
This should be a fun and useful piece once it’s built.
Good luck with the build!

did you get the plans from woodsmith 157 feb 2005? I have been thinking of making this. You did a great job on doing it.

I got it from Woodsmith’s Bookcases (cabinets & Shelves) http://www.woodsmithstore.com/w1001.html
It was a lot of fun. I made some mistakes, but amazingly the slats for the wine section came out perfect. This was the practice one for the triple version that I wanted to make for my girl friend. I can only hope that it goes at least as well as this one went. In the instructions, it said to print 8 copies of the leg profile and glue to the wood. I decided to make a template using some hardboard and just used it for all 8 bandsaw cuts.
But, I got to buy a new tool, I then needed a spindle sander.
