Corner Cabinet For Wine

: In Europe corner cabinets are common and easily found in antique shops. They are often used for keeping alcoholic drinks. Living in the heart of California's wine country it seemed a good idea to build a cabinet dedicated to wine. The cabinet is built out of Black Acacia that came from the Presidio in San Francisco with interior panels and drawers made from Sycamore. The cabinet is designed to be hung in a corner. The coopered doors open like wings to an interior made bright with drawers and panels of book-matched Sycamore. (Spot the owls!). Above the two drawers the lower shelf has holes to allow 6 bottles to sit upside-down and can hold and support a total of 12 bottles and a magnum. The upper shelf will hold 6-8 wine glasses. The two dovetailed drawers are for the accoutrements. They have Spanish Cedar bottoms and could be an appropriate place for cigars. The shelves have a waterproof finish for protection; everything else is finished in oil to bring out the color of the Acacia. The pulls and friction catches are all hand-made.
