I posted this on another forum, so if you belong over there sorry for the repitition, and wanted feed back or input. I put project because this is not a build yet. Once money starts this starts


I have built this via sketch up and I have saved some shots as jpg. I can get better angles if someone would like to see them.

The idea started with talking with propnut and looking at my wifes wine rack I made her. The last 3 pictures I will show will be of where this would seperate and the top and bottom pieces. The first picture will show the original wine rack.

Hmm guess I can only put 5 picture through managing files oh well I will post in new threads the rest

Oh yeah the 120.2 will be a 120.3

These were sugestions through the other site but might be harder to pull off than I think. It is using two wine bottles as resivoirs. the picks are below and the suction and discharge into the bottles would either have a sheet of plastic in the bottle to keep air bublles down or just plain moved

That's a lot of space to cover with not many components. What kind of scale are you working on? It looks like a lot of space to cover with your watercooling setup, too. Are you sure your pumps have enough lift to move from bottom to top of that setup?

Personally, I'm not sold on the idea. But being that you see it in the context of where you want to put it and how you want to use it, the idea probably makes more sense to you. Good luck if you want to go forward with it.

The dimensions are shown below. It is really not that tall comparison to full towers and see if I can find the original wine rack I said I would put in.

This is also why I put the pumps a little higher than I originally planed , just to get rid of some head pressure

I was also thinking of adding this to either the side or front to give another part of the illusion

Its more of a wine cask case...with a wine rack in it...iono how you should label that... especially with the tap.

Lol yeah true the wine bottle and tap is not 100%. The tap would be easy to install but the bottles would be harder since the drilling could break them. The mounting wouldn't be that hard but the drilling and would be. Green and blue bottles would look sweet.

The only part that would be plywood with a venier would be the back piece if I went with oak.

Not sure on the woods yet.

What do you think:
Red Oak for top piece and Maple for bottom.
Cherry for top and Maple for bottom
Mahogany " " and Maple " "

I have to agree, I would leave out the tap. Make it look like a wine rack as much as possible....a true sleeper


Can't wait until you start on it Mike.

Not anymore, I used to live behind Earo VW off of Hyder.

Your comments earlier sound very much like what one would expect from a Service high school student/grad
