Hello, haven’t posted anything for a while, I have been working on this project. My daughter and her husband purchased a house that had a room that was planed for a wine storage/display; however, the builder never finished the room. So, I volunteered to make the storage cabinets. This room is mostly cosmetic because my kids don’t drink that much wine; nor is the room climate controlled and as such would not be a great place to put large volumes of wine. The only thing in the room was the small base cabinet on the far wall; I added the top cabinet and then made the top and bottom cabinets on the left wall. Everything is made from solid Cherry, except the backs of the top cabinets and carcass of the base cabinet which is plywood. The strips that hold individual bottles are set in individual dado’s and glued in (I could not get my pin nailer to shoot nails where they could not be seen) each one was glued and clamped, because the dados fit perfectly they will never come apart. The top for the base cabinet is also solid cherry; note, pictures were taken before the glue was dry—hence the clamps on the splash guard.
This was a fun project; but a bit tedious when sanding. finishing and gluing all the little parts.
Hope you like it; my Kids sure do. Note: that is me in one of the pictures—Dad at work.
