Project Information

This is my first posting. I live in Tulsa, OK and I have been watching everyone on here make amazing things. I'm not a carpenter which is obvious, but I have a lot of people in my life who work with wood or do contract work. Several months ago I decided to borrow some old tools from a friend and get them running again and make some stuff. So here is one of my recent projects. I try to finish a project within a day or two, because my ADHD is so bad that I get bored, even on a fun project.

My girlfriend likes wine and I like her so I surprised her with this thing. It's made from all the cheap 1×3's and 1×2's and underboard and plywood that you find at home depot. The screen is from home depot and I cut it in half. I didn't get the design anywhere I just sort of thought it up. I didn't want to paint over it so I just put poly on it, except on the top I put cherry stain for the hell of it.

She was happy with it and I was proud that it didn't fall over when I moved it to her place.

Thanks for looking, I'll put up my other projects too!

Hey Tulsa! I like the wine cabinet. I think the 4×4 with the holes bored for the wine bottles is a great idea. are you going to make a more formal top for it or is it already finished?

It's already finished. She is going to set her glasses on top and maybe a bottle opener. I don't have a router yet so it's hard to do certain designs. What would you have done to the top?

Some interesting ideas in you design. Keep up that creative thinking.

FYI High temps and or large variations in temperatures are not good for wine storage. Being somewhat familiar with the climatic conditions in Tulsa I would not suggest keeping wine in the cabinet for very long. Wine needs cool constant temperature to stay at it's best.

Thanks LesB I will keep that in mind! I'm not a drinker so I'll let her handle that aspect of it. I know lots of people take their wine very seriously and probably have serious custom made cellars and cabinets. That would be a great business.

Great job. The thing I always liked about woodworking is having an idea and making it real. The rest comes with practice and experience. Keep having fun with it!
