How to store wine

Wine is best kept in a cool, dark place at a constant temperature. If you have a bottle with a cork, the wine will remain at its best if you keep it lying down. The cork stays in contact with the wine and therefore remains moist. This is necessary as the cork lets air through when dry, making the wine less tasty.

MDF Paintable | Tight

MDF is a commonly used board material, for example, to make furniture; a door, a casing, or a bookshelf. It is also suitable for making a wine cabinet from wood. MDF Paint Carrier is the variant on which a paint-carrying film is pressed. This layer ensures that the material does not need to be primed and you can start painting immediately. This is very handy if you want to give the material a tight finish. MDF is very easy to process: when milling and sawing, the material does not splinter. The material has a high wear resistance.

OSB | Original

OSB 3 is made of wood chips that are laid out in the same direction and then pressed. This makes the board very strong. To make an OSB board, almost no waste is produced. The wood chips are already a recycled product. Therefore, OSB is becoming more and more popular and is replacing plywood in many cases, because the production of OSB is more sustainable. The material is easy to work with when making your own wine rack. Want to know more about OSB?

Plywood | Natural

Plywood has a natural look and feel and is currently seen in many interiors with Scandinavian influences. Plywood Interior Poplar and Plywood Birch are very suitable for making a wine cabinet. Plywood birch is the most popular form of interior plywood because it is the best quality choice. It is waterproof glued as standard and has a clearer wood grain compared to poplar plywood. Moreover, birch is a wood species that is much harder than poplar. It can therefore take a beating!

Carpentry panel | Warm

Timber panel is a material that gives a warm appearance through its wood grain and colour. The wood grain is subtle, but it does give the wine cabinet its natural character. And let that be a nice addition to the look of the wine cabinet. Carpentry panels are available in spruce and pine. What is the difference? Pine has a light colour whereby the knots and flames are striking. In comparison to spruce, pine is slightly more yellowish in colour and slightly heavier in weight. It is a somewhat tougher type of wood, which makes it easier to work with.

Underlayment | Contemporary

If you choose underlayment, the wine rack gets a contemporary look. The material can be found in many trendy restaurants, shops and cafés. It is originally a construction board, used to strengthen jobs. It is therefore a strong material and very suitable for making a wine rack, if you like to be unique. Underlayment Finnish Spruce is a plywood consisting of 7 layers and is made of Finnish spruce. These layers are glued crosswise to each other, which makes the board very strong and hardly works. The ends are beautiful because of the layers and are often kept in sight. The only thing to consider when working with Finnish pine underlayment is the risk of splitting.
