Wine rack and liquor cabinet

The bottom portion of this cabinet is a wine rack capable of holding 40 bottles of wine. The upper portion is a liquor cabinet.

The wine bottles actually sit with a slight downward slope (7 degrees), which allowed me to keep the 3 boards I used to support them more even in thickness, and therefore thinner overall. That increased the density of the wine rack – about 36 in tall by 30 inches wide.

The upper cabinet sits on top of then wine rack. The sides are sloped throughout the project, which made things like doors a little more challenging.

I used sapelle for the entire project.

don’t know if you meant to do it but it sure has an asian ‘slant’ which makes it even more attractive.
