40-Bottle Wine Buffet

The top is a Sycamore slab, the rest of the piece is European Oak. Hand crafted (not by me) iron insets are on the ends. The base is one large piece of the oak with a natural edge. I made the feet with natural edge oak cutoffs.

Finished with teak oil.

This Wine Buffet matches the Sycamore Slab Waterfall Table that I made earlier.

Very cool idea with untreated top plank and iron walls.

Great job on both! Love live edges there so beautiful. I made an Entertasinment Center on here and left the edge on it and people seem to really like it. Your table is really nice to boot. I really like the leg idea with the slab running down to the floor from the 45. Great job!

Super nice. I really like the wrought iron and natural edge wood as a combo. A nice place to store some delicious veeno. That bench is really kool

I loved your table and the wine rack is the perfect complement to it. This is some beautiful wood. Is this English or American sycamore (I kinda assume English)? And your helpers are just lovely.

I got the Sycamore (and all of my wood) from Cropp Timber in Hamburg, Germany. I don’t know what kind of Sycamore it is, I didn’t realize there were different kinds. These two pieces of Sycamore are the only two I’ve ever worked with and they were thrown in for free after already loading up the van.

Thanks for the reply. It’s FREE sycamore, the best kind! I don’t think it’s American but it’s beautiful and you did a wonderful job with it. I have got to do a table like yours!

i know this seems like a silly question to all the experts on here, but when you made the wine rack how did you cut out the curved parts? what dimensions did you use for the cut outs? I’m going to build a wine rack this winter and would like to do something similar to your design above. Really cool stuff!!

The arc for the bottle neck was cut out on a drill press (any bit 35mm or larger should work fine). The arc for the rear of the bottle was cut on a band saw. The larger, rear notches are 100mm wide and 17mm at their deepest. If I had a 4” drill bit, I would try that. All of the arcs were smoothed out with an oscillating spindle sander. There is about 10cm from the center of one notch to the center of the next.
There are 12cm between the rows. The horizontal rack pieces are 7cm wide. I make a lot of wine racks, so I have a template that I made with 1/8” plywood and use for marking my boards before cutting.
I broke the chuck on my drill press as I was starting my most recent project (more wine racks), so I made the front notches the same as the rear on the band saw.
