Wine Cellar

by admin on April 8, 2015

Before I took my courses (but after I had finished my basement) I built my racks for my wine cellar. After I took my courses, I started to work on my tasting room, which allowed me to experiment creating cabinets and doors as shown in the pictures below. I also crafted my own recipe for staining and tried a wipîng varnish.
