This wine cabinet was inspired by the art form of stained glass windows and the flowing curve of a bottle of wine. It holds 10 bottles of wine on the lower racks and many additional odd sized bottles on the shelf above.
16 glasses will fit on the hanging racks above and miscellaneous wine openers, corks etc will find a home in the drawer.

The wood is all natural i.e. no stains were used.

I couldn’t decide if I wanted the box to be of cherry or maple so I made one of each. I hope to sell them both and make another for myself.

The original plan was to fill the gaps between the mosaic pieces with Art Resin. But even after using a blowtorch to get the bubbles out there were still too many bubbles in the material – probably from the wood outgassiing I’m told. After three tries I gave up, routed all the inlay out and started again with what I know. The gaps were filled with a Wenge inlay.

Wow I really like what you did with the stained glass look and the textures of the “glass” pieces. I’m not keen on the long legs….. only because I see that as space where more wine could have been stored ;) Well done.

Very nice design.

I really like what you did with the inlay pieces to achieve the stained glass look. My go-to “filler” strips when making inlays is walnut. I’m also a fan of cherry so I like the cherry version better.

The curved door edges are a great touch as well. I could also see this cabinet with more of an A&C or Craftsman look (my favorite style).

It’s in my Favorites.
