I installed this in June and it’s pretty much full now. My client is a wine lover and very wealthy.

That is a WHOLE LOT of walnut sticks! Beautiful cellar- your client should be thrilled with this.

Thanks everyone. Yes, my client was thrilled. The whole thing is routed and lacquered. I calculated that I did about 24,000 router passes!

What thickness did you make the racking rails? I am considering a very similar design, though not as extensive.

I built the entire cellar using metric. It’s not normal for me but the numbers were way easier to deal with. My rails are 20mm x 20mm (which is slightly larger than 3/4” x 3/4”).

Thats awesome!! The walnut looks amazing. A friend of mine has asked me if I could build one for him. I think I might regret this undertaking!! I was wondering, the corner shelves, are those for displaying a certain type of bottle or just a regular bottle?

The corner shelves are for magnum’s. I dished solid walnut so the bottle stays centered and tilted them at 15 degrees. As for your undertaking this project, it took me 200 hours to design, make and install the 2300 bottle cellar.

It’s beautiful, but something is missing…
