Anyone interested in a liquor cabinet build?

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
I am on the fence about building myself a liquor cabinet. If some people were interested in seeing a build log and final pictures of it then that may help sway me into doing it. Anybody?

I would be interested in a Liquor Cabinet PC Case.

Depends on the materials really. Wooden cabinets - boring. Acrylic cabinet with led lighting - Noice!!

Id like to see a build log. That would be interesting.

I would sub that for sure. What do you have in mind for it? I would love to build a glass bottle shelf using some Arrogant Bastard Ale bottles that I've held onto, seeing a cabinet build could be some inspiration I'm sure.

Well I am thinking of 2 shelves behind a dual door front. Then on the top there will be this "hood" area if you will that will hold some glasses. It will be out of oak, NOT stained but clear finished. And I was also thinking of maybe adding some blue LED or cathode lights to the inside as well, but IDK how that will look plus its gonna cost about $80 worth of lighting for what I want to do. Overall dimensions will be somewhere around: 48h X 24w X 14d(all inches).

PS: That glass bottle shelf looks pretty sweet. I could make one of those out of half gallon crown royal bottles heh. Another build log for another time?

Yea I was gonna look for a magnetic switch when I went back to lowes today. Should only be like $5 and when you open the doors the lights would turn on . So do you think fluorescent white would look fine for the lighting? I was thinking it may not look great which is why I was thinking about the blue. Only bad thing is to get blue I have to use PC lighting which requires I also buy an AC->DC converter and wire the lights up. Where as lowes has some 20" cabinet fluorescent white lights for $15 that plugs straight into 120V AC.

Ok so not floorstanding, I see. Sounds good, I don't think LED/cathodes would really do it for something like that though. If it were me I would just use a standard white tube light. I'm sure LED could work, but like you said it would cost a lot because you will need a lot of them.

Good luck if you decide to go through with the build.
