Nice plug dude! It's a great feeling to drop that puppy in there, isn't it?

Larry,
Here are some pix of my wine cellar I built a few years ago.

Wow, your build is really nicely constructed. Very smooth! Have you tried to cook in it yet, or are you still curing it?

Mark, your cellar is awesome. I don't think I could keep one that well stocked though. When I moved to Nevada I brought along around 10 cases of wine (we spent a lot of time in Napa). The drastic change in humidity caused the corks to bleed. It was like “well, we’re having hamburgers for dinner, should I open that great bottle of cab we were saving?”

Thanks Les and Amber,

As far as keeping the cellar stocked, we've been trying to drink some of the 4 or 5 year old bottles and I'm just restocking with bottles that can lay down for awhile. Which means more are going out than coming in! We went to Napa last year, I just wish we were closer.
As for the curing fires, I was planning on waiting til I finish the entry. Any thoughts?

Mark

We used to go to Napa monthly - it was an easy day trip from the bay area. In regard to the cures - the only down side I see is that soot may compromise the bonding of mortar if you were to to the entry later. If you don't mind cleaning it off - no harm.

Mark,

Quick question, when you said that you cut the bricks for each row, did you cut the sides so you would have less to fill between and make a better fit? or was it just on those small areas that you had to custom fit the brick?

just wondering as I am planning my oven here soon.

Thanks
David

Les,
Are you saying I would have to clean soot if I cure before, or after the entry.
