My Big Finish

For my Big Finish project, I plan to complete a wine rack and storage cabinet my wife has wanted for a couple of years. Being a freelance DIY/Wooodworking content producer, I often let my home projects go to the back burner while I work on paying projects. Well, now, I plan to finish this one right quick.

Here’s the “before” (the current view) of the wasted space area:


See that narrow space against the wall and to the left of the fridge? There I plan to create this:


There will be room for wine bottles in the diagonal storage cubbies, and additional space for other libation bottles and/or wine glasses in the top shelf and the cabinet space below.

Look for detailed how-to photos, step-by-step instructions, and illustrations in the coming weeks.

Thank you to BLACK+DECKER for sponsoring this post and inspiring me to FINALLY finish this project!
