Awhile back I posted a thread asking about who had a VinoTemp 18 .
how it worked for them and suggestions on drawers/trays ect.
http://www.cigarasylum.com/vb/showthread.php?t=66646

On that thread I got a lot of great ideas and help in deciding on what I would do .
Great advise from BonGing , Porch Dweller , CdnStogie and especially BadBriar .

Thanks guys.

So I thought I would start a new thread on my build .
I was going for thrifty ...but decided to spend a bit more for easier build.
ha

The trays most use are from Cheap Humidors are the 12 "x 8 1/2" x 2 1/2" theses are very nice for $10 and they have hand hold holes . some have just used a single tray per shelf a few have cut some trays in half and glued a half on a whole tray to make a full drawer for the 28 or 24 bottle wine coolers .

To make a full drawer for my SMALLER Vinotemp18 I will use Cheap Humidors smaller display cabinet Spanish cedar tray ,
10 1/4" x 8" x 1 1/2" I am attaching a photo of the CH smaller trays .

I ordered seven trays .
I will take four full trays and cut two more in half I will glue the 4 half trays onto the backs of the 4 full trays making four 10 1/4" x 12" x 1 1/2 " trays.
I also ordered 8 36"x1"x1/4" Spanish cedar strips/boards
I will then add a one inch x 1/4" strip at top of each tray to make the trays/drawers 2 1/2" deep.
I will take the last full tray and add on inch strip to make a half drawer for bottom .

I have a bamboo cutting board to cut down for top shelf .


THE PLAN !

Ok finally the 7 Spanish Cedar trays from Cheap Humidors show up !

After they sat in KC 100 miles away for 4 days they sent them to DesMoines 250 miles away and then to Omaha 100 miles away .. kind of a giant circle jerk of inefficiency .

Here is a pic of the trays and a few of the small Spanish Cedar boards I will be using to build my drawers .
.the black squares are foam project board I am using as templates when I glue the drawers .

Don't laugh... Used a dremmel and then sanded smooth & flat to fit. Table saw would work - just go slow and not rush. The wood on the trays is soft.

Very nice! Easy way to make trays any size you need! I used Titebond wood glue and my trays are awesome! Impervious to any humidity in the Wineador. :tu
