cup board, mugs, & tumblers, oh my!

as a maker of objects, i am also a collector of objects. this will be the first of my collection posts - so watch out for more soon.

first up: CUPS!

this cup board has been a project in the works for awhile - now it's finished with the help of the amazing paul donnelly. it's mounted in my kitchen and looks lovely if i do say so myself.

cup placement will change as the collection grows.
if building your own cup board and you plan on painting it...one suggestion: paint all the boards before assembling and once it's put together just touch up paint. getting this sucker painted was the BIGGEST thorn in my side.

I absolutely adore this. I have a collection of miniatures of famous buildings from my travels and I've never come up with a creative/attractive way of displaying them - something like this would be perfect!

Did you model this after an existing product or find instructions online for making it? I want this but I definitely don't trust myself to make it alone.

I love this but want to know how safe my mugs will be in earthquake weather... Maybe ill add a dowel or something in front

Wonder if this would accommodate S&P shakers? I've been searching for a solution!

What kind of wood did you use?

Do you happen to have the dimensions and measurements in case we want to DIY?!
