Technical Tuesday Episode #439: Compact Elegance With Grand Mahogany

August 13th, 2019

If you are going for a smaller wine cellar project, you might as well go all the way. And by that, we mean taking the custom route when it comes to your  wine racks. It also means selecting top quality wood, stain and finish options. Our Tech Tuesday client did just that and the result is just stunning:

Project # 307295
Wood: Custom / Grand Mahogany
Bottle Capacity:
Where: Valhalla, NY

Compact elegance in this wine cellarWe are all for the layout of this relatively small wine cellar which utilizes custom racking all the way. Even though the space is narrow, you can see that there is still good variety in the wine rack styles. There is ample individual and bulk bottle storage, courtesy of the Individual Bottle Racks, Open Diamond Bins, and custom shelving. The design team even managed to fit in a tasting station with countertop. This is, again, the big advantage of custom wine racks. You can make them fit into virtually any space. Plus, you can do it in style as well to suit your preferences. Speaking of style, check out the compact elegance of this wine cellar.

We love the Grand Mahogany x Dark Walnut combo that brought about a truly luxurious feel to this project. It should be noted that Grand Mahogany is one of the pricier wood options offered by WCI. This plantation grown hardwood is extremely attractive, sporting a uniform color. The wood has a few slight variations that go from medium to pale pink and the hardwood has a moderately coarse grain pattern. But the most part, the grain pattern is straight. Racks made from Grand Mahogany are comparable to sapele and cherry in terms of hardness, density, and grain texture. They can also easily match it up to sapele, hard maple, or cherry wood racks in terms of durability and stability. The wood is so versatile that your racks will be second to none in hardness, density, and grain texture.*Cheers*
