How to Build a Cocktail Hutch
Turn a plain pine cabinet into a sophisticated vertical bar by adding crown molding and custom rack assemblies
If you always get caught hunting through cupboards for cocktail fixings just as guests begin arriving, it may be time to corral all those items in one, easy-to-use location. A tall and slender cocktail hutch provides a handy and attractive place to hang glasses, store wine bottles, tuck bottle openers and napkins, and display spirits. The notched boards that create the X-shaped wine rack and simple glass rack assemble quickly, but installing the finishing touches of crown and base molding takes a little time. It'll all pay off at your next cocktail party, though, as your guests admire your craftsmanship. This time, you won't be too busy to chat with them.
