My wife saw this cabinet in a magazine and asked me to make one for her. It is made from Hickory with a cherry stain and a semi and satin gloss mix poly and a coat of wax. The egg crate is Oak plywood with Hickory trim. Now I have to but more wine to fill it up!

Nice cabinet. My wife would call that essential furniture.

Thanks for sharing.

It is a nice project, and I know of a fellow LJ that would appreciate it also,... might be a bit small for him?

I just bought some hickory a few days ago for several projects. But after seeing this, I may have to change my priorities. Your wine cabinet turned out very nice and I have added it to my favorites list. Well done!

Looks awesome! Would you please summarize the procedure for assembling the egg crate? Just curious about the most efficient way to measure for the cuts and assemble it. Thanks.

Sure Wes. I did my math (trig) to determine the approximate length of the long pieces and made them 1” longer. Then I made a cross cut sled that I used to cut the dados (I would add photos on the sled, but I took it apart when I finished). I set up the dado head before I used the sled with it to make sure the dado head was accurate. This was important because the slot in the sled needed to be the exact size of the dado (I will explain latter). Using 3/4” plywood for the egg crate, I used a small cut off as an index the was 3 1/2” so all of the cuts were the same on one side.

Then I did the other side and this is when it was important that the dado slot in the sled was exactly the size of the dado. When cutting the first opposite dado it must be exactly opposite the one on the other side. I used another small cut off piece of plywood put it in the dado on the up side and in the dado slot in the sled. This makes the opposite dados exactly in line. After about an hour or two of cutting I dry fit all of the pieces and marked where I wanted to trim the ends of the over size ends. This was done on the table saw with the same sled.

After this was done and I knew exactly how big the egg crate was going to be I could finish the case which has an opening for the egg crate that is about 1/4” bigger. And gaps between the case and the egg crate are hidden by the finish trim.

Hope this is understandable as it was the part of the build that I spent the most time planning how i was going to do it.

Very nice, beautiful cabinet & great craftsmanship. I really like the frame & panel cabinet, very attractive.
