I received a commission to create a rustic wine rack. The wood is oak and came from local pallets. Here are pictures of the build assembled, but yet unfinished:
Two coats of Minwax Early American stain was applied to richen and even up the base color:
The next day, I applied two coats of Minwax spray satin poly to seal in the finish and detail work. Regarding details, to give the pocket screws an ornamental ‘nail’ look, the square slots were filled in with 5-minute epoxy. Each ‘nail’ head painted over with Tamiya Steel colored enamel (an old pen painter I had from scale modeling years ago).
A French cleat mounts the rack to the wall.
The finished wall rack, lying on its back:
Delivery is expected to happen later today. The girl friend of the one who commissioned this has seen the unfinished build and loved where it was going. I hope she likes the finished product.
