    wine cabinet mk2

    the first design wasn't readily accepted, so, back to the sketchup board. this one is a little leaner than the first one, and a bit less costly.

    I really like that design! It's elegant in its styling, and quite functional as well.

    The proportions seem quite nice. I'm guessing it's to be about 22~24 inches wide, 30" or so tall, and maybe 16" deep?

    For the most part I like it, too. I don't care for the curves on that top back rail, though. I think, if there are going to be any curves on that piece, they should be fairly small 90° arcs. Since there aren't any other curves in the piece, I find them unpleasant to look at as they are.

    jim - you hit it pretty close to the mark, here's a pic to show you how close.

    dave - i originally had it with 90 degrees on the corners, and i thought it looked rather clunky, and uninspiring. on a hunch, i went with a 3:5 ratio (that's 3 inches high, and 5 inches wide larry), and i thought it looked a lot better.

    i dont like the curves on this either dano,, if anything go with the cluod shape that the craftsman style uses so much of on the back board..to me that would go much better with your finger joints

    I agree with Larry on the back piece, the rounded is out of place. I do really like that design though overall. Is the pull-out at the top a stored tray or is it attached?

    darren - it's a stored tray. i'll be using up some walnut veneer that i've had for a while.

    here are pics of the original backboard design, and the 2 revisions....

    I like the first revision. the one in the middle.

    The curves are still not right in my opinion.

    I can offer an opinion, I wont hurt dans feelings.

    I much prefer this design with the bottles on the side.

    I dont see much difference in the backs, curved, slightly curved, not really would give that much of a thought, they all look ok to me.

    while the wine glass holder looks nice, I dont see why with shelves you need it. The unit is on the floor, the glasses are very low to the reach.
    If the stems on the glasses are delicate, people bending down and pulling on the glasses to get them might break a few stems. Im used to my childrens friends grabbing wine glasses. what can I tell you.
    and even though Im going to use your wine bottle holding cubes on the side of the unit,(when I build one) I would and will put doors on the center(inset doors, keeping your drawer underneath to hold corkscrew and whatever, I like the drawer idea) to make it look like more like a cabinet, but this is only my opinion. A nice piece of veneer covering door panels would be nice.that is my idea. Your cabinet looks fine, but I go for more of a closed type unit.

    oh, I must say also, youre sketchup talent is really tops.
