How to Build a Stylish Bar Cabinet
Use vintage stained glass panels to build this bar cabinet in just 4 hours
The graphic pattern on this red-and-amber-colored stained-glass sidelight really complemented the Mod-ish furnishings in my apartment. But the window's tall, narrow proportions are what made it ideal for the door of a wall-mounted storage unit for bar glasses that I wanted to put in an awkward recess in my dining room.
Here's the step-by-step for the DIY stained-glass bar cabinet I built:
Rip wood to size
Using a table saw, cut the bar cabinet's 1x preprimed pine sides to the length of the glass door. The ends and shelves should be 1 ½ inches smaller than the window's width.
You can also have the wood cut for you at the lumber yard.
