Some friends asked if I could build a wine tower for their restaurant. An ‘Industrial’ theme was required with straight vertical lines to enhance the height.
The dark blue frame that rises at the rear like two cranes from the floor to support the main frame is made from mild steel that reaches over the top and anchors to the wall. The 14 vertical square tubes are stainless steel, each one holding 23 aluminium cups that in turn hold a precious bottle of red wine. The whole thing is surrounded by a thick wall of glass to keep it safe but unrestricted to the viewing eye.
In all, 322 bottles of the finest red wine can be stored on the tower and are accessed by a ladder within the enclosure.
