May, 2012—This has been my “spare time” project for over a year now. Finally got it finished. The concept is simple: wine rack on the left side, room for liquor bottles on the right side, and a drawer on top for utensils. The stiles and rails are made of hickory, and the panels are made of oak. Everything is stained Dark Walnut (Minwax). There are multiple coats of water-based polyurethane finish.

Joinery is pocket holes (Kreg Jig). There are heavy-duty swivel wheels underneath the bottom apron. The counter surface is a granite remnant. The drawer uses full-extension ball-bearing slides.

The wine rack design is based on a wine rack I saw at a local restaurant. It consists of vertical rails with horizontal cleats that support the bottles. I am very happy with how this turned out, and my wife loves having it completed!

Superb, Art, even if it isn’t a band saw project.

This is nicely done. Congratulations.
