Another Wine Rack

Holds 7 wine bottles. I’m not sure what kind of wood the wine bottle holder is. I think it may be honey locust based on a photo of a project I saw here on LJ’s. The base is black walnut. I got the wood from a friend off his firewood pile and thought I’d try it as an experiment. Once I got into it, I couldn’t believe how beautiful the grain is. I used a de-waxed shellac as the sealant and hand rubbed gloss Minwax poly (4 coats) as the finish. If anyone has any suggestions as to what kind of wood this is if I’m wrong on the type, please let me know because I would sure like to get more of it. Right now I have enough for maybe another 4 or 5 of these wine racks, and then I’ll need to go with another kind of wood. Thanks for looking.

Wow, the grain “is” beautiful. Beautiful project.

Very cool. I’d bet my TS that it’s some sort of locust. A very underrated wood.
