The Madera Mini Bar!
Being a custom maker is fabulously rewarding. We are constantly challenged to create designs that mesh with the vision our clients have when they first contact us about a particular project. The satisfaction in making something from scratch that achieves their dreams can never be overstated.
One challenge that we have always had was finding the time to create our own unique designs. This past year we developed and built this prototype of a mini bar and now, after some minor tweaking, it is available for ordering. The overall dimensions are 37" wide by 58" tall. Closed, the cabinet is 16" deep. When fully opened the depth is 24". As shown above, the retail cost is $3,950 + tax, (shipping and handling not included).
The initial concept was in consideration of urban apartment/condo residents or anyone needing a compact and secure, locking cabinet to store their wine or spirits that not only looks great but is, at the same time, extremely functional. The bar shown above if made from blackened steel and afromosia wood with a textured glass panel in the door. Other wood options are available. When opened, a pull-out surface extends 7" - allowing ample space for mixing up your favorite cocktail. There is horizontal storage for up to 8 bottles as well as a pair of wine glass hanging racks. In the remaining interior space several additional bottles can fit vertically. Several options for additional bottle storage below the cabinet are available, please inquire. 2 dimmable low profile LED puck lights illuminate the cabinet interior and are controlled by a hidden switch outside the cabinet. Cheers!
