Well, I’m finally taking the plunge into my first project. It shouldn’t be overly challenging but I doubt it will be a walk in the park, either.
It’s a 48” (L) x 36” (H) x 16-18” (D) drybar / wine rack. I’ve attached some pre-production illustrations for my concept and joinery.
I plan to use 3/4” Mahogany hardwood project panels for the carcass and 1/4” for the back. No doors, as of right now. Rabbet joints will be done on the box corners and I’ll dado the shelves and vertical supports. They will not be holding much weight, just some glasses and stemware.
I’m still conceptualizing the millwork but I’m thinking of dental or rope crown.
More to come later!
Would love to hear your thoughts on what I have here. Please keep in mind that I am new to the trade. Thanks for looking!
