Our condo builder included a small room under our front porch that is perfect size for a small wine room. So I finally completed the build today and put it into service. It is made of cherry. Since this room will never see natural day light, I stained it with GF Brown Mahogany Gel Stain. The main body is finished with shellac and the top is finished with GF Arm-R-Seal for a bit more durability. It is fully assembled with dowels. I want to thank Mike001 for the ideas and inspiration he gave me as I dove into this one. Thanks for looking.

Thanks guys. Anyone who wants to send me a bottle or two of wine, I will happily give them partial credit for the build. :-).

BTW, total capacity is 70 bottles. So, yeah, it will take a while to fill.

Very nice. Fits the area perfectly.
Well done.

Very nice indeed! Did you make all of those bevels at the table saw or using a router?

Another stellar job on the wine rack…..You done good, bud, and it’s something to be proud of….Now just turn loose of some of that dough, and buy enough “hootch” to fill it up…..You’re gonna have to do some heavy drinking..

Ben – all the bevels were made with a 45° chamfer bit at the router table. Cuts came out pretty clean, but a few had a little tear out. Good thing I had extras :-)
