Well it’s part wood and part metal. The top and bottom shelves are made from some reclaimed Western Red Cedar and the wine holder from some left over pine. The round metal piece in the middle is half of a four foot fan shroud. The top was finished with three coats Tung Oil and three coats Poly. The metal parts were sprayed with Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear Enamel. I forged the grape vine and leaves, and welded the rack. The wine glass holder is an old rake. I’ve been trying to integrate metal into my project because I have become bored with just wood projects. I think integrating metal into the project makes it more interesting and more sellable. I’ve just started learning to Smith and Weld so this is my first project to use my newly acquired skills. I believe it came out alright so I’m happy. On to the next project.
Basically the entire project was made out of reclaimed materials, reclaimed from the pile, I call my back yard.

Thanks for looking,

Thanks Jim I appreciate it,. I have plans for another one like it but not a wine rack maybe a entertainment center.

Thanks Pottz,. Wood is my passion, just meant needing to integrate some other materials. I certainly didn’t want to send chills through your spine. Just looking to spice things up a bit.

Thanks Charles, means a lot from you.

Thank you Ivan, it means a lot.
I’ve been looking for what I call my “Shtick” design style. I think I’ve found it. I needed to learn new techniques and styles. I want to keep it stylish and use reclaimed materials. I hope I hit that on the nail. Hahaha
