Lacquer finished Redwood used for the wine racks and shelves.

Cellar owners can choose to keep their Redwood unstained or unfinished, because the material looks gorgeous even without any stain or finish. But the client in the Vancouver wine room construction project wanted his wooden racks and shelves to be lacquer finished. He consulted the experts from Coastal, and they agreed to apply lacquer on the wood.

It is very important to consult a wine storage specialist regarding the application of stains and finishes on any wood type. Although there are various kinds of finishes on the market, like shellac, polyurethane, lacquer, and varnish, not all of these options are compatible with all wood species.

Lacquer is a popular choice not only because it is durable, but also because it provides an elegant gloss to the wood that it is applied to. The team of builders from Coastal applied a lacquer finish on the cellar’s wooden racks and shelves as per the request of the client. The lacquer made the Redwood’s colors bolder and more enhanced. The client was very pleased with the result.

Coastal Designs Custom Wooden Shelves and Single Bottle Wine Racking

The success of the Vancouver residential cellar construction project was mainly because the client and the builder openly contributed ideas for the design of the structure. It was the client who suggested the installation of the wooden storage cases on commercial rollers. The setup helped the boxes become more accessible to the client. Every time he wanted to get a bottle from the cases, he simply pulled the shelves out by sliding them across the rollers.

Wood wine racks are the most cost-effective wine storage solution. Custom wine racks made from wood not only provide strength and durability, but also create a dramatic presentation of wine collectibles. Wood is a material that is easy to work with and it is readily available. The most common type of wood variety used in handcrafting wine racks is All Heart Redwood.

Redwood trees are known for their towering height of up to 360 feet. These massive trees are some of the oldest living species in the world, with some as old as 2,200 years old. They are native to the coastal eco-regions of Northern California and Southern Oregon. These ancient giants have tannin-rich bark that protects them against insect infestation and damage, which contributes to their longevity.

Redwood lumber is a popular choice in wine rack construction because of its excellent characteristics, such as resistance to mildew, shrinking and warping. Since this wood variety is accustomed to cool and damp conditions, redwood wine racks are the best storage and display options in a climate controlled wine cellar. Their rot resistant properties prevent degradation of racking units and give them the ability to endure the test of time.
