    Need suggestions for a liquor cabinet

    Looking for something with 2 or 4 lower glass doors and a top that is least 18-24 inches wide and 4 to 6 feet long.

    I can't build it myself and looking to spend about $500-$600.

    I like the Howard Miller Cabernet but everything I see has wine holders which would be completely wasted as I want to display.

    This would be perfect if it didn't have the wine part and wasn't $1000 not including shipping.

    I want something that is quality not quantity.

    Have you tried Googling this on the internet I found several that fit your bill in description but not in price. They're a lot more expensive than your planning on. But they look real nice.

    Re: Need suggestions for a liquor cabinet

    I was searching craigslist in my area and found this solid wood Pier 1 Imports set up listed, like new for $100. Called the guy and offered $75 cash and I would get it tonight. He agreed.

    I plan on oiling it up, taking out the wine holders and putting in 2 shelves. I just need to find someone to cut theshelves for me or try and find the perfect pre-made size in the store. Drill shelf holder holes, get a few shelf pins and BOOM...done. I may re-stain it...but I kinda like the way it is.

    I really wanted a glass door but this will do I guess.

    Can anyone suggest any simple modifications?

    Here it is:

    Dave,

    I agree with Joe, but you can think of this as being a starter cabinet.

    Re: Need suggestions for a liquor cabinet

    It sounds crazy but you might "need" space for your 20 or 30 "current drinkers" to be out in your cabinet/ hutch/ sideboard.

    You can store the rest in the bunker.

    Also, as you've implied, it's best not to lay down your wikkey - cork taint or even leakage of the precious fluids could result.

    Exactly. I just picked it up....looks nice.

    It has an extension on the back and if I rip out the wine holder...I can shelf that space. Thinking...including the top...I can fit 100 bottles in/on it.






























    Should have it filled in................
