Custom Oak Wine rack Shelves

Sometimes we like to do a little more creative work so we took on a lovely job for making 2 bespoke wine racks using American Oak. The Oak was finished with a dark oak wax and brushed to give an aged look. Brushed Oak is achieved by running the Oak through a wire roller that essentially distresses the timber and creates random grooves and textures.

We have considered providing a brushed finish on our shelves but generally customers are looking for the more contemporary type look for shelving to match their interiors.

Types of Oak Grain

When cutting a piece of Oak across the grain you will be able to see "End Grain"
Plain Grain this results when the Oak is cut parallel to the grain.
Quarter grain (cut through the growth rings). This is often seen on the front edge of each floating shelf.
Long grain refers to flat grain and quarter grain.
