This was my final project for my Machining Practical during the first year of the Cabinetry and Woodworking Technology Diploma program at Red River College.
This was a pre-determined project. It was built off of plans provided as part of the curriculum. Wood choices and minor details (hardware, shot glass sockets vs wine glass hangers, etc) were left to each student.
I made the choice to use maple as the wood for the body, with cherry used for the top, panels, bottle tray, and glass rack.
I don’t recall the exact timeframe of this project (5 weeks of afternoons rings a bell in my head for some reason).
There is a hidden latch in the project that will allow the top to slide forward, once in the forward position the back section can be lifted up and then the top slides back to near it’s original position to support the glass/bottle display portion.
Fun project! I’ve had several requests to build some of these for friends and family – perhaps when I have some more time on my plate I’ll be able to take a crack at that…...
