Although I am not a drinker one of my hobby’s is cooking and entertaining guests in my home “This Old Crack House”.

I have been blessed to be able to be able to have three kitchens in my home.

I host events and serve wine to my guests fairly frequently. I needed a simple easily accessible wine cabinet that wouldn’t take up a lot of space in my main kitchen. This cabinet also had to blend with my kitchen I had designed built and installed.

I found a plan for a wine cabinet and modified it incorporating stained glass and other features I desired.

This was a very simple and inexpensive project, and has served my needs until I am able to construct my own wine cellar in the near future.

The wine cabinet is 41 inches tall – 23 inches wide- and 16 inches deep.

It holds 19 bottles of wine and 20 wine glasses. The top serves as a host for cheese cutting presentations ,along with various wine and other beverage tools.

You have good taste, and 3 kitchens. It goes hand in hand. Again excellent craftsmanship. If I count my daughter’s easy bake oven and a extra microwave, then I too have three kitchens. I look forward to your next one.

Mr Trim,

Thanks, lol

How about you making a cabinet to hold the keg?

I was at a event and noticed a built in bar that had built a very nice cabinet around a keg.

Really this project is not hard to build at all.

It is no more than a long box with a door and top and some simple glass and wine wood holders.

I have no doubt that you could build this.

I found a simple plan some where ( I think it was in a popular woodworking mag.) and modified it to fit my needs and tastes.

Really you can change what ever you want to fit your needs or tastes.

I wanted to incorporate such things into my project as the stained glass on the sides and front.

Be creative have fun with the project.

Let me know if I can be of any help.

Good luck!

Well done Dusty. One day I will finish the bar I am making. You are certainly one step ahead of me on this one.

Oh well Grumpy, we all have unfinished projects.

I have become a big believer in enjoying the journey we take threw life, because the destination is often uneventful or a disappointment.

very nice but this old CRACK house ?? Was this a rental before full of crack users before ? That would be a bit chilling as you still might find some in the weirdest hidy holes a crack induced idiot to hide things such as behind an electrical outlet or a loose baseboard. dangerous stuff that crack.
