Almost all this wood is found or out of a renovation project. The legs are ‘stickers’, the wooden pieces that lumber yards use under the stacks of wood. It took time to find 3 wine boxes that were very close in dimensions. The pull handles are from Lee Valley. The drawers simply slide on felt strips placed on the bottom of each box. Used one coat of SafeCoat Durostain Walnut and Mahogany colors and left it at that for a slightly washed look. Afterwards sanded the top with steel wool.

Wow, 3-Gaja boxes! Where did you get those from, if you don’t mind me asking? (Feel free to PM me.)

Nice project and reuse of materials.

I’ve got numerous wine boxes just sitting in the basement right now and this gives me an idea or two, so thanks for posting. There isn’t really a standard wood sized box for wine, so I know what you mean about trying to find like-sized boxes.

Very nice work. Thanks for sharing. I wish I could make something like that from my wine boxes. Unfortunately, mine are made from cardboard and have a plastic spout coming out the side.

It’s beautiful, highly professional and eye-catching. It doesn’t look like the frame is reclaimed wood either. Did you use a stain?
