The hutch looks great. Also looks like a very nice job of staining.
The wine bottle holder-did you make that? If so, can you explain your construction process?

That is a beautiful design. The color turned out great, and goes really well with the slate tiles. The tile really work well with this piece

The wine rack is made of 1/2” MDF. I used the same process for construction as they use for the cardboard dividers you get when you buy a case of wine.

10 MDF panels that are 1 bottle length deep (12”)
(4) – width = 2 wine bottles (4”) + 1 divider (3/8” – gave myself 1/8” of play)
(4) – width = 4 wine bottles + 3 dividers
(2) – width = 6 wine bottles + 3 dividers

Used 3/8” straight bit to cut notches spaced at 4 3/16” on center and 6” deep along the width of each panel. In retrospect, I think I could have eliminated the 1/8” of play in the slots and just cut them to 1/2”

When you are done, you will have a series of slotted panels (like an “E”) which can be fit together to make a grid. I turned the grid on it’s side and encased in a box and put molding around the inside to hold the panels in place and to hide the edges.
