Project Description – The racking is constructed by remanufacturing wine barrel staves , utilizing the natural curve of the barrel .
Dowel rods hold each bottle and the holes for the dowels and bottle neck are machined into the stave. Mortise and tenon construction connects the horizontal racks with the uprights. Face framing and crown are staves that have been steamed flat.
Unusual Aspects – Our patented ‘Stave Oak’ designs allow the natural curve of the wine barrel to create design accents and aspects for a variety of room designs. The natural patina and hoop marks remain on the stave fronts with the wine stained purple on the back. Fuming blends the used stave color with any new oak materials.
