Wine cabinets seem to sell well, so here are six more. Applying lessons learned, never make just one.

Two each in Walnut, Ovangkol, and European Oak. Finished with teak oil. Four Elm feet are underneath each cabinet.

The top and base of the Walnut cabinet are European Walnut, the rest of the cabinet is Black Walnut.

These are about 40” tall, 13” deep, and 16” wide and they will hold 12 bottles and 9 glasses.

Nice looking units. I agree if you’re selling, easier to make multiples when you’re set up to cut.

HawkDriver, I’m still in Ansbach and the Army wives here buy wine racks about as fast as I can make them. I’m constantly on the lookout for different sizes and designs.

Fly safe.

These are really nice pieces, I’m not surprised they sell well. What sort of joinery do you use to construct them
and how long do you reckon they take to make.

The goal with these was to try to make smaller, more affordable wine cabinets (relative to what I’ve made previously). So, I was trying to make them quickly. Most of the joinery is simply butt joints with screws hidden under plugs. These six cabinets took me about 50 hours of shop time, from rough cut lumber to finished products.

They’re nice and simple yet sturdy and very practical. All it needs is a peg for a bottle opener and a tray of fine cheese!

I’m not a whine drinker, but those cabinets look nice.
