Oak Wine Cabinet

A little while ago, I was commission to design and build an affordable but sturdy wine cabinet. In order to keep costs low, I used oak plywood for the case construction but used solid oak for the face frame, trim, base, and doors. The bottle racks are solid oak with half lap construction. It turned out pretty good, the client was very happy with it, so that’s what counts!

I like the design and the way you integrated the glass holders with the rack. Very nice.

Just curios, though, why didn’t you hide the hinges, rather than allow them to show?

Still looks great, just wondering on the technique.

Dennis, I should have used better hinges but I guess I didn’t think of it at the time. Remember, I had to keep costs low.

Mike,

I don’t think your choice of hinges was wrong, I was just curious as to why you would do one over the other, or if it was even a concern.

The hinges look just fine as they are, I am just used to seeing them hidden more often than not.

Also, I have gotten used to hiding my hinges and was just wondering what reasons someone may have for not hiding them. i.e., things like it may have been easier not too, cost of hinges or time involved, etc.
