The marvelous month of March is here! One of our favorite things about this month is that Spring is just lurking around the corner. The season of new beginnings is very near and we’re going to get those good vibes going. Let’s start out with this beautiful wine cellar project. It’s a showcase of all the good things about one of our top wood options: All-Heart Redwood.
Project # 319219
Wood: Platinum / Allheart Redwood
Where: Kennesaw, GA
Stain: Dark Walnut
Selecting wood for your wine racks can at times be quite challenging. There are so many varieties in the market and each one has their own impressive features. But for wine cellar projects, there are factors to carefully consider when choosing your wood. These would include durability, resiliency, and cost-effectiveness. You would want your wine racks to age gracefully, just like your wine bottles. And as far as wood options go, All-Heart Redwood can offer these and a whole lot more!
All-Heart Redwood is actually the most expensive part of the redwood tree. It comes exclusively from the center of the log and sports consistent reddish hues. That’s why it possesses uniform grain patterns that are so attractive even when unstained. Despite being the “most expensive” part of the tree, All-Heart Redwood is worth every dollar you’ll pay. Why so? First off, among all North American woods, it is the most resistant to moisture, mildew and rot. This is the reason why it was used in subterranean wine cellars before mechanically climate controlled ones were invented.
Second, the characteristics of All-Heart Redwood are top-notch. These include (and are not limited to) resistance to shrinking, warping, and checking, apart from durability. This simply means that over time, your wood wine racks will age beautifully in your wine cellar. You also won’t be saddled with future repair or renovation expenses. That makes it an absolutely worthy investment.
Third, All-Heart Redwood is one of the most, if not the most, eco-friendly wood choices you can have. Here at WCI, all of our redwood is purchased under the guidelines of SFI. This stands for Sustainable Forestry Initiative. What is SFI Certification all about? Basically, SFI Certification provides customers with assurance that the redwood they purchase has been harvested in an environmentally sound manner. We worked hard all these years to ensure that our redwood products meet the SFI standards to help our clients make environmentally sound choices. So as you can see, these are all the good things that All-Heart Redwood can offer – and maybe even more! *Cheers*
