I built this wine cabinet from solid red oak. I wanted to make it unique and a one of a kind piece. So to make it really stand out, I custom made the trim and shaping of many pieces. Then to really add the wow factor I added a custom designed carved toe kick of grape vines and doors with grape clusters. And to top it off I made a set of custom matched wine glasses with matching grapes laser etched onto them for a totally matched set. To make it a final perfect apperance I turned to General Finishes as I do on every project.
For the finishing process, I used GF American Oak Gel Stain. After I went through that process I came back and with a soft bristle brush made a mixture of Van Dyke Brown and Burnt Umber glaze effect to really make the grain and grapes come to life. Then to add the final touches I used GF high performance Satin water based topcoat applied with a turbine air spray finishing system. Then of course many hours of polishing and buffing to get the perfect deep furniture shine and look of a show room floor finish.
