An ongoing project
We continue to add not only corkscrews to our collection, but also corkscrew displays; despite the fact that we are running out of walls to display them.
One of the projects that we started was to convert this wine rack which sits inside one of our bars into a corkscrew display board with shelving behind it. With two wine cellars in our house, this wine rack has never been used except to display various bar jiggers and barrel taps.
Step 1: Remove the bar jiggers and barrel taps; the difficult to display items have found a new home in a closet.
Step 2: We replaced the ceiling light with a special low profile fixture so that the new corkscrew board/door will clear the light.
Step 3: Remove the finish molding around the wine rack.
Step 4: Come to the realization that this wine rack was built very well and with many nails.
Step 10?: I may have gotten ahead of myself and skipped a few steps because I completed the display board which is going to cover the area where the wine rack (still stands) use to be. Damn those hidden nails! They really built this think to last.
More progress coming eventually.
I'm constantly adding new corkscrews to my collection. Any new finds as well as articles which may be of interest to corkscrew collectors will be posted here.
