Hi everyone, I haven’t posted any of my projects for a long long time, but that does
not mean I haven’t been busy. I plan to post most of my projects I have done in the past. So first off I will start with my most recent almost completed wine cellar. We started this project in Jan
2011 and finished about Nov 2011. The entry into the wine cellar has a tunnel ceiling made of 1/4 sawn fir flooring, I had it custom made at a shop. It’s tongue and groove, 4inches wide, random lengths all over 6’ in length so I was able to minimize the number of joints, the tunnel is approx 12’ long. Very challenging to make this ceiling fortunately the ceiling is 10 ft high in this area of the house. Other than the tunnel the rest of the work we did was the framing of the walls,building the wine racks, painting and the floor. The wine racks are made mostly of 1/4 sawn fir, some non 1/4 sawn fir was used for the sides of the racks. I had to cut the material in my shop and assemble it in the wine cellar as the racks are just too big and won’t fit through the door. The boxes are made using real wine box fronts which we purchased on Ebay, I built the boxes and added the fronts on. This was a very enjoyable project, I loved the woodworking part of the project. I did not build the doors but I did build the door frames and hang them.
The wine cellar has a capacity of approx 1000 bottles. And yes I built the truck and trailer too
