I've been building some kitchen cabinets for a remodel I'm doing and reached a point where I need a little input from the group. One of the upper cabinets will be in a corner over a shallow base unit by there self. That upper is going to have a wine rack with a shelf above it. The upper cabinet inside dimensions are 29 1/2"Hx31"Wx10 1/2"D. The wine rack is made of a front and rear grid that are identical with an opening of 4"x4" in each square. To properly support a variety of wine bottles, what would you make the depth of the grid? If I place the front grid flush to the front of the shelf (face frame added later) and I put the rear grid all the way to the back of the cabinet, it seems that the bottles could slide forward and fall. I tried setting the rear grid forward about 2" and it seems to carry the bottles better but is this the way it's done? Below is a few photos to peruse (sorry.. forgot the popcorn)
17 assorted boxes ready for assembly
They take up a lot of room...
The wine cabinet is the one on top
After some layout and trial and error I got the first grid assembled
Cutting out the second grid
Had to see if it was even going to work. Just hate working w/o plans
It looks like it could hold about 24 bottles of wine. (if I get it anchored good)
There is to be a shelf added above the rack. I'm planning on making a grooved frame around each grid to make it a little nicer.
