The book I bought was used and copyrighted in 2003. The book provides some good thoughts on creating a wine cellar and selecting wines to stock the cellar with. I am not smart enough on wines to know if the wines he covers are really good or not. I am somewhat familiar with wood working and math. In Chap 4 (pages 99-102) he covers cellar size, he estimates that a couple will consume two 750 ml bottles of wine every three days or 240 bottles every year. These 240 bottles he converts to 12 cases of wine per year. ( my math converts 240 bottles to 20 cases of 12 bottles each). He then estimates having 3 cases of wine to give away as gifts etc per year. He plans his cellar to hold 8 years worth of wine to allow wines to age for the future. On page 102 he comes up with the need to store 103 cases to cover the eight year wine cellar cycle. ( my math 20 plus 3 times 8 years equals 184 cases of storage needed for the 8 year cycle) On page 105 he states you need 580 cubic feet of storage for the 110 cases plus 580 cubic feet to walk around in. (my math computes a case of wine at a little less than 1 cubic foot and for 184 cases that would compute to 184 cubic feet for wine storage plus maybe another 360 cubic feet to move around in). He also computes cubic yards, in his example he says 1,160 cubic feet converts to 129 cubic yards He uses 9 cubic feet to a cubic yard. . ( My math says there are 27 cubic feet to a cubic yard 3 x 3 x 3 (L X W X H) is 27. 1,160 divided by 27 is a little under 43 cubic yards.)In chap 5 he goes about building a wine cellar and suggests an 8 by 18 foot cellar that is 7 or 8 feet high. On page 133 he says to place studs 16 inches on center but his drawings on pages 132,137 and 138 show the studs at 17 1/2 inches on center.
