Just finished this wine room for a guy that I work with. Didn’t really know what I was getting myself into on this one!! One of those deals where we were flying over Afganistan and he says “You do some woodworking don’t you?” Each section has 204 six inch pieces and I built 6 of them! I was having dreams about cutting those six inch pieces!! It turned out really good though and I learned alot building them. The first and the last two pictures are of them installed in his room, the second and third one are in my garage. Hope you enjoy.

very nice, nothing is better than getting smarter at what you like to do, accept maybe for some free wine.

can you explain how you did this a little more? Are the 6” pieces continuous or is there one on either side of each piece? I’m just a little confused as to how you did this, but its gorgeous and I think I’d like to steal some of the concepts.

Ken90712 – I fly the KC-135R, alot of fun. Get to go to some pretty cool places.

MrJesse34 – the “uprights” for lack of a better word are inch and a half wide and around 70 inches tall. the “wine bottle holder upy thingers” again for lack of a better word are 6 inches each. I can’t remember the exact spacing inbetween each one but it was enough to fit a regular bottle pretty loosely. I then connect all the uprights together with inch and a half wide “crossbars” that are dadoed to hold seven sets of the uprights. Didn’t want to go too wide with them or they wouldn’t fit through a door.

Fantastic idea. I’ve gotta get busy. I have about 5 cases of wine in the cardboard cases downstairs, laying sideways of coarse. I really like this idea. Mind if I borrow it? Thnx in advance.
