It started with a simple need for wine storage and rocketed up into a vintage flavored show piece. After making the decision to have a bar cabinet built, the client came across a book shelf that was set on vintage casters and everything changed from there. Original designs were thrown out and we embarked on a weeks long search for the right set of casters. A set of vintage swivel rollers were chosen and they provided the vintage caster look but gave some style that different from the rest. With the rollers chosen, a new design was developed and the fabrication began.
The bar features vintage hardware accents including the swivel rollers, corner straps made from old wine barrel strapping, salvaged steel rods, nails and drawer pull. There is space for 25 bottles in the rack, hangs a dozen wine glasses and has a convenient drawer for keeping the openers, glass charms and napkins on hand. The wine bar is made of birch, finished with a dark stain and a clear matte sealer. It measures out at 70" tall, 28" wide and 15" deep.
