Custom Wine Racks – in American Walnut – a Video
We recently finished building these custom wine racks for a client in Aspen, CO. The racks were built here and then shipped out to be installed in the home.
American Walnut is one of my favorite woods to work with. In the past year or two we have been seeing its popularity rise once again. It is a very hard wood which makes it perfect for the wine cellar environment. Walnut is one of the few American species planted as well as naturally regenerated. The wood develops a rich patina that grows more lustrous with age.
Our recent project, a wine cellar in Aspen, Colorado, was built from American Walnut. The homeowner was sent several wood species but very quickly chose the walnut.
The walnut wine racks are built into brick which is a perfect balance between the stone and wood. The grains and colors in the walnut are stunning and can be seen on some of the close ups provided.
The wine cellar itself is home to well over 1,000 bottles with pull-out drawers across the entire bottom half of the cellar for ease of case bin storage.
The wine cellar was a referral from Dave Sokolin, one of our close partners and one of his customers home in a very exclusive home in the Aspen area.
