After good feedback from all of you and my father-in law, the design is finalized.
The rack will hold 10 bottles, and will have thru tenons where the racks meet the side assemblies.
Here’s the overall view, with the thru tenons. Still trying to decide if I like them at two different sizes or if I want to shoulder the back ones so they’re uniform… comments please?
The view with the legs removed to show the joinery:
Off to the wood store, hopefully today. Going to make it out of some cherry, so we’ll see what treasures I can find there (need to get some ash for a few featherboards too)
