Wine Tasting Bar

Wine tasting bar for the new Crawford Family Wines tasting room in Los Olivos, CA. . 


Winemaker’s Private Cellar

Last year I had the opportunity to furnish a local winemaker’s private cellar. The project included entry doors, cabinetry, copper counter tops, backlit wine racks, stemware racks, a liquor cabinet, and a few bistro tables. Made from reclaimed douglas fir. Photo credit to my lovely wife, Shannon.

Wine Cellar Update


I delivered phase two of the wine cellar today. It was good to see the backlit wine bottle racks (phase 1) in place and looking good.

I posted a few shots of phase 2 (cabinets and stemware racks) below.




Next I’ll deliver the custom entry doors and copper counter top.


Time to Wine

IMG_1261I am excited about this wine cellar project that I started this week. I am using removable dividers in the bottle racks to allow for different patterning (“X” pattern, zig-zag, diamond pattern, etc…). The dividers can also be left out to allow space for wine glass storage or vertical bottle display (as you will see in some of the photos). The bottle racks will be inserted between rock pillars in the cellar and will be backlit as I did on this project.

Next I will tackle the cellar doors, and then the cabinetry, wine glass storage, and a large liquor cabinet. Stay tuned!

Round Wine Tasting Bar

IMG_1137 On friday we delivered this round wine tasting bar. This is another project that I partnered with John Brigham on. The bar is about 15′ in diameter. IMG_1125 IMG_1128IMG_1120IMG_1113As the old saying goes, “It takes a lot of beer to make a good wine [bar]”.
