Custom built wine rack

by brae  

I am so brimming with excitement over how this turned out that I just needed to share.  :D

This is attached to a Houseworks cabinet, so I built a box from 1/8" thick bass wood to mimic the structure of that cabinet.  I painted just the lead edges of the inside as well as the entire exposed side of this addition.

Inside, I have a place to hang wine glasses and to store three bottles of wine.  I bought these items at the Bishop show even though they were a little large for scale.  I think they work wonderfully here since they aren't sitting next to anything else that would give away that fact.

I made the glass holder from mini cove molding...it was actually a sample from a dollhouse wood supplier.  There was exactly the amount I needed for this project.  Score!

To keep the glasses from sliding too far back, I glued in a block right behind where the second sits.  I left the holder and the shelves in natural wood.

Each shelf is made from 1/16" thick bass wood.  Just as with the glass holder, I put in a stopper to keep the bottles from sliding back too far.

To keep the shelves in straight while the glue dried, I used a 3/8" post as a spacer.

Now, who wants a glass of wine?  :D
