Dump some water in the sinks to test the drain shut-offs before removing them! These are very expensive! Maybe more so than the faucets or a retail sink! And you just can't beat them. They probably work fine.

The "in" thing for kitchens is now the foot operated valve....but perhaps you have to wear a hair net to look cool using it!

Cool idea. In our surgical scrub area, you can't use your hands to touch anything, and there is a typical setup with a lever that you swing with your knee, to turn the water on and off. There is also a foot pump for dispensing soap. Something like a foot switch would be nice for a wine making area sink.

That foot valve is a good idea, I use them periodically, but just not sure the budget would allow for something like that here.

Working on the door details now. I have some old cherry stickered in the garage that I will try to use for my racks and doors. Thinking of making something like this... I have 2 interior doors and one that will need weatherproofing. I will try to incorporate some glass in the main entrance door if I can and keep it strong enough with the ledges.

The key to making a door like this is to closely examine the end grain and alternate the curves so that they alternate. If you have a cup going the same direction on every board, you'll end up with a door that is very round and it won't fit the jamb.

Just a little woodworking tip on a winemaking forum. smileytoast.gif

Thank you for the tip Steve!
I've been thinking about building custom doors with lots of wood carving. I've asked that question elsewhere and not got an answer. :)

Update.

Walls are framed, top 2 feet insulated
In winemaking area. Drywall, tape, walls painted. Plumbing roughed. Electric roughed, outlets and switches in, tracks up for lighting and box up for main light. Floor painted. Door made and hung between wine bottle room and wine making area. "Wine Line" is in and functioning but ends not terminated. "Wine line" is 3/4" PEX which travels from my garage (AKA fermentation area) to a wall in the winemaking room.
Hallway and Wine Bottle room. Plywood, paper, wire, scratch coat and start of finish stucco coat is up. Electric roughed, outlets and switched.

It's cool to see some real plastering going on. It's really becoming a lost art!

Very nice, thanks for sharing.

It's been awhile. Well, the room has been done for quite some time, though I have not built the wine racks just yet, the wine is in there in boxes. It is passively cooled and was about 62 F in Feb and March, and now has crept up to 64. Still, that is much better than anywhere else in the house.

I have used the wine making room a few times, racking, measuring, and a bit of lagering, and such, and absolutely love having the sink there. What a time saver. I used to have to bring everything upstairs to wash.

Here are some photos...
