I turned a closet in my basement into a wine cellar. It involved a lot of framing and basic constrution stuff but also a fait bit of “woodworking.”

I started with a closet and vapor sealed it.

Reframed it and rewired it.

Insulated the new framing.

Built cabinet boxes and racks boxes

Built live-edge redwood table and counter top.

Finally built a 3” thick cherry door (insulated)

You have done a great job with this conversion and are to be congratulated! What are the dimensions of the cellar and how many bottles can you store?

Racks hold 480 bottles. Shelves hold another 21 cases. I was not striving for max number of bottles. I went with this rack design so I could read labels without pulling bottles out. It was a lot of time in front of the drill press with a 3-1/2” Forster bit.

I am curious how many bottles of wine were consumed in the making of this project????? (Laughing)

I do have an inventory management problem, bad record keeping. It is the inverse of my tool hoarding problem.

Have your say...
