I made this wine cabinet as a house warming gift for my favorite aunt when she purchased her first house in 1999. It took me until 2000 to complete it but I consider it to be my start in fine woodworking, moving past DIY home projects. Here we are 8 years later and she still loves it and as you can see, does a good job refilling it. It is made primarily of oak plywood with a solid oak top attached with screws from the underside. The interior and moldings are solid oak. I stained it to match an existing dining room set that she has. I hope you enjoy seeing it as much as the enjoyment it has given me in the hobby it launched.

This is the perfect size. It would fit under most windows and stores enough wine so you don’t look like a alkey. Do you have dims. to give out. Wait, its Three bottles high and 4 bottles wide. and it one bottle deep. Thats easy.
Its a keeper
