Rustic Pine is one of our top wood choices for wine cellar projects. Apart from being durable and cost-effective, the wood also sports that sought-after rustic architectural look. But don’t think that’s all Rustic Pine can bring to the table – or in this case, your wine cellars. This wood is versatile in many ways. That includes letting you create a variety of themes for your wine cellar. Today’s Tech Tuesday is an illustration of a “royal” Rustic Pine wine room:

Project # 317416
Wood: Custom / Rustic Pine
Bottle Capacity: 816
Where: Hunting Valley, OH

Royal Rustic Pine racks

The Victorian vibe of this project is definitely on point. It is a very generous space that required a really good layout to maximize it. Thankfully, our highly experienced design team was able to rise to the occasion. Everything was custom-made to suit the room’s configurations and the clients’ style.

Dark Weathered Stain for a royal charm

As earlier mentioned, Rustic Pine is the wood option for this project. Let’s delve a little bit more into the features of this wood. Essentially, it is characterized by a soft, creamy color. This is combined with subtle streaks and structurally sound knots. The streaks and knots are what really defines the wood by bringing about that “old-country” charm. But with the right stain and finish options, you can attain a bevy of other looks as well. In this case, a Dark Weathered Stain was applied on the racks and cabinets. This combo gave the entire arrangement a bolder appearance which looks positively royal!

The wood wine racks look positively royal!

In its unstained state, Rustic Pine is already quite stunning. But one of its best features is that it lends itself to a variety of stains and finishes to match your home decor. It is particularly suited for weather finishes, like this Dark Weathered Stain we applied. We strip down the intergrain matter to approximate the appearance of wood that has been aged outside for decades. Rustic Pine absorbs and retains all types of finishes extremely well. It will become more pronounced in the dark stained woods.

Lots of bottle storage variety
Now this Tech Tuesday might have a royal vibe going on, but the cost of the racking is pretty budget-friendly. Rustic Pine

is our best value by price per bottle space because the supply is huge. Pine grows throughout North America and represents a huge quantity of the overall wood produced. Rustic Pine, in particular, is a grade that includes knots. This allows it to give a bigger yield and lower cost than a clear grade of wood. *Cheers*
