Celebrating The Beauty Of Rustic Pine

March 7th, 2012

Rustic Pine has been labeled as one of the top five wood choices for quality wine cellars. It holds top spot together with Redwood and Mahogany. However, it’s pretty interesting to note that there are not too many wine cellars that really utilize Rustic Pine for their wine racking system. Whether this is intentional or a mere oversight, we’re not the ones to judge but what we do know is this: it’s high time wine cellar enthusiasts start appreciating just how amazing a wood choice Rustic Pine is. Rustic Pine Wine Racks When it comes to custom wine cellars, this is pretty much the wood choice to go for when you’re after a truly authentic vintage feel. So let’s chalk up the reasons why Rustic Pine should remain on top of our list.

Exceptional quality in an affordable package…

Among the top five wood choices for custom wine cellars, it’s only Rustic Pine that showcases a soft creamy color but contrasted with subtle streaks and structurally sound knots. That’s why it’s called a “knotty grade of wood.” This makes for the wood’s really “rustic” appearance. When translated to wine racks and wine cellar furniture, it gives a very old country charm that is so warm and nostalgic.

As far as quality is concerned, there is no question as to the resiliency of Rustic Pine. It is highly durable and can withstand warping, shrinking, and decay. But apart from this, the knotty characteristic of the wood makes it possible to turn out a bigger yield while maintaining low cost harvest and manufacturing. This means choosing Rustic Pine can actually give you the best value by price per bottle. Unstained, this wood is naturally gorgeous. However, Rustic Pine also sports a bevy of beautiful grain patterns that show up really well against custom stains and finishes.
