After drilling 240 holes shelf pins and cutting 100 shelf boards, I finally got the first wall of bins installed. The bins are 18.5 inches deep, and are made from 1×10 boards that are stacked two deep. Here are a few in-progress shots, and then a photo of the completed wall of bins.

Achievement Unlocked: I built a small jig and used it to build a larger jig.

I’m working on shelves for #ProjectWineCellar, and I need to drill identically spaced holes for shelf pins in about a dozen boards. The small jig has two holes with the proper spacing and I used that jig to transfer the spacing to the large jig that can do an entire board at once. #wine #woodworking

The small jig is made from a 12 inch long board with two holes drilled at the proper spacing.The large jig is a 87 inch board with several holes properly spaced. The jug is shown clamps that are holding everything together while the glue dries.

If I have to be stuck someplace with COVID, at least I got stuck at the lakes. There are worse places to quarantine. (Barbee, IN)

My 10 year-old nephew is staying with us at the lake this weekend, so the only work I was able to squeeze in on #ProjectWineCellar is applying the vapor barrier over the floor. Edges were sealed with acoustical caulk, and the plastic was reinforced with tape where they contact the shelf platforms. Then platforms were reinstalled. #wineA vapor barrier made of 6 mil plastic sheeting applied to the floor, reinforced with red tape.Platforms made of 2x4 lumber and plywood reinstalled over the vapor barrier along the back and left wall.
