Have a cabinet which is already done and hanging on customers wall. He called me and asked about adding a wine rack into one of the smaller cabinets. I can get the back section of lattice in and secure it with a few nails, but since the openings on the lattice are 4x4" I can't get to the inside to affix it to the back of the face frame. Any suggestions?

The way I make those racks is to line up the bottoms of the openings either cross hatch, half circles, or circles. The front and back are about 6" apart. The bottle sits at enough angle. From 3½" to 4" works for most all standard bottles (750 ml).

For your application, make the front and back an assembled unit. You only need 4 or 6 stretchers to keep it together and the distance from each other. Set it into the opening. You can put a small screws with just a yankee, or by hand. It doesn't take much to keep it in place.

Yes I think that will work. The opening( face frame) is 15.75" whereas the inside of the cabinet is 17.75" so if I off set the stretchers on either side I should be able to squeeze it in and have lattice flush to carcass sides.
Thanks
