Building a Wine Rack

We have a space under the basement stairs that is used for storage.  It is that odd, triangular space that usually ends up with all kinds of junk.

We enjoy having a glass of wine with dinner, or on a pleasant summer evening, and while we buy mostly the “2 for $10″ selections at the store, we like to keep plenty on hand, plus our splurges on Westport Rivers sparkling wine and reisling.

Kevin decided to improve the functionality of the storage space, and he designed and built a wine rack using 3/4” plywood (furniture grade).  Enjoy the photos!

Oh, and today we saw a juvenile (first year) bald eagle eating something fairly large – not quite sure what- sitting on an ice floe in the river.  It might have been a seagull.  We certainly have an abundance of them!  He was there for over an hour.
