Working on the wine cabinet for my sis. I hope to have the case glued up today. That got me to thinking about how to make the wine rack itself. She wants a traditional diamond shaped grid to store the bottles in. I would really like to do ship lap joints so that the parts or flush with each other. But this really looks like a daunting task on the surface. It would be simpler to just lay them on top of each other, glue and screw from the back side. But I hate taking shortcuts.
Anyone built one like this? I haven't put much thought it in but I seeing a jig being a requirement to keep the spacing of the dados right. Then probably a lot of hand trimming to make it all fit and then fit in the cabinet.
