First project in several years is done! Some mistakes were encountered on the way but had to start somewhere and this was pretty fun all in all.

Took a little longer than expected, but I wasn’t in a big rush and this fit the bill to get my hands on jointer, planer, router, and table saw once again. So glad to have those tools out of storage and a little workspace to take up this hobby once again!

Case and lattice work are mahogany, and back panel is walnut. Put a little under counter light in it to see how it looks and the wife likes it so it stays.

Thanks for looking!

From the pictures it looks like it turned out well.

Nice fireplace wish I had one.

I like that, especially with the light feature. I’m going to save that for a possible gift. Thanks for posting it.

I like it. How did you attach the lattice pieces to the case? and are the lattices symmetric/level (ie., the bottle tilt is only due to where the bottles rest on the them?)

Paul, attached the lattices with 18ga. brads. Front ones to the face frame from behind to conceal and rear ones were toenailed. Yes, most of the tilt is from the wine necks and a slight bit from variance in trimming them to fit the case.
