Icebox Wine Cabinet
This vintage cabinet stands ready to supply cold drinks for your next soiree, and timeless construction makes it a pleasure to build.
While the original function of an icebox may be obsolete, one look at the photo shows that the look is still fresh. This cabinet is based on an older design, but it has a new job — as a serving station. Inside are four storage compartments for storing beverages, glasses, and supplies. A flip-up lid conceals an ice bucket and laminate-covered serving area. You’ll find plenty of enjoyment in building this icebox, too. Like the styling, the construction is all traditional. We used red oak throughout. The case, doors, and lid feature stub tenon and groove as well as mortise and tenon joinery. Even the finish is meant to evoke a well-used antique. Once it’s complete, sit back and enjoy the result of your efforts with a cold, refreshing drink.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
