Hello everyone. Its been a long time since I posted anything. Thought I would show the reproduction I did of the 2013 Stickley collector’s Wine Rack. The material is Flame Birch I acquired at an auction a couple years back. I got 450’ of this beautiful wood and I finally decided to use some of it for my niece’s wedding present. I have always like the use of ebony to accent a piece (Greene & Greene). The cheese board is also made of Flame Birch and Ebony. I used General Finishes Arm-R-Seal 5 coats, Semi-Satin (I mixed even parts of Satin and Semi-Gloss to make the flame pop)
