Wine Cabinet in Cherry and Figured Maple

A place to keep my bottles before I drink them – sort of a bus station for wine!

Cherry, cherry ply and figured maple.

Drawer handles and all sliders from Rockler.

If I were to do it again, I would dovetail the sides of the racks and drawer – these are mortise and tenon.

Thank you Terina and sawedoff for the nice comments!

I meant to include this note in my initial write-up:

The base plan for this was from American Furniture Design Co. It is the second one on this page:

Kay, that is beautiful wine storage rack! I love products with ball bearing slides,too. they work so much better and longer than wood on wood. Very tastefully done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....Jim

Nice wood, great execution, funky drawer handles. The leg tips kick it up.
With this much weight (and activity?) metal slides really are the best. At our shop when we do a piece showing drawers like this, we put an L shaped strip on the side of the drawer to mostly conceal the slide when closed. Easily retrofitted if you like the idea.

I’m digging it. With the narrow drawers I don’t think dovetails would add much. The variety of colours from the wine bottles adds a nice splash to it as well.

this is awesome.

Gene – I am working on adding the L shaped strips. That will fix the one thing I do not like about this cabinet – the way the metal slides show. Thanks for the suggestion.

This is super nice Kay. Wow! Very nice wood combos, and just the whole idea is outstanding.
