It looks like you utilized the existing studs for reinforcement with the backing board?

Did you assemble all the bottle holders to the vertical with screws? or a nail gun?

Thanks so much in advance John.
Thanks for the kudos, much appreciated.

The room is standard construction, with 2 x studs on 16" centers, closed cell spray foam insulation, and 1/2" MR drywall, taped, floated and painted. From there, all of the woodwork is surface applied over the drywall, but certainly nailed through it and into the studs.

Horizontal 1x2's were attached to the wall behind the racking, the racks attach to those horizontals. Each rack was built individually in a jig that I made to keep them all uniform. Everything was made, and attached with a pneumatic trim nailer, using appropriate length nails for the application.

I'll post some "under construction" photos and a finished product of one area to help illustrate the above.

I was able to smear the "customization" right off with my thumb..... I also ordered a custom cellar sign. Again very shoddy work and the wood feels almost like balsa wood, so fragile if you breath on it it may break..... Ordered a set of "Madmen" style highball glasses several years ago, again same thing very poor quality. Glass was full of defects and the shiny steel rim along the top was all tarnished and colored. I called and complained and they refunded my $$$ and said to keep the glasses as a "gift".....
Just an update, this was due in early March, but the #*¥~#* thing isn't in yet. Purportedly delayed due to QC issues at the manufacturer, I don't like the sound of that at all. It's supposed to be in from the manufacturer this week for "inspection" prior to shipping to me. They did give me a $75 coupon as a token of apology for the delay. More later...........

OK, @ibglowin etal, here's my evaluation of this purchase, from the onset to now.

Ordering and paying was a breeze, made an inquiry about the product and got a call from a salesman, we chatted, he was able to cut some $$ off of the shipping since it was going to my office, commercial delivery.

The product was scheduled for delivery about 40 days ago, they apologized and sent me a $75 gift certificate for my trouble, haven't used it yet.........It shipped this past Monday and arrived here just fine today, loaded it up and took it home at lunch.

Came in 4 boxes (table base, table top, chair, chair) and was packed well, a bit hard to cut through all of the wrapping plastic, but it was done well and there was no damage to the product.

The table base is very heavy cast iron, probably weighs around 60 pounds, really solid, goes up and down easily, locks in place, and was already assembled except for one leg, which I installed with the included bolts and hex wrench in just a few minutes. The top is nicely stained with a pretty decent finish on it, color as expected. The top has a steel structure underneath with a 3/4" threaded nipple which fit right into the threaded female hole in the top of the base spindle, about 10 or so revolutions of the top tightened it up nicely. The table is stable on its feet and the top has no wobble to it at all, even extended all of the way up as it is in the picture. It's a winner.

The chairs aren't quite as heavy as the table, but are sturdy. They came assembled except for the backs, which bolted right on with the included hardware and an open end wrench. They're wooden seats, so I wasn't really expecting the lap of luxury, but they are fairly comfortable.

Start to finish, unboxing, assembling and setting them in the room took about 30 minutes and was quite easy, although the table base is a bit awkward to move around. I'm fairly pleased with the product, it fits nicely in the room, physically and aesthetically, plenty of room to maneuver around and the chairs tuck up under the table pretty nicely.

I'll invite Mrs. JohnD in for a bottle tonite and we'll put it to the test...........

How do you say "looking better" when it's been looking awesome all along. Great Job,
Mike
