My one board 25 bottle wine rack

I wondered for a long time what I would do with a 5/8 x 12 x 48 warped elm figured board that I have kept for severeal years. Well, the light bulb came on.

This board was from a slab of an elm tree and the final resaw piece was 5/8 thick. After a while it  cupped by 1/2".

The bottom is a slab 1 3/4 thick  from the same log, the four supports are oak.

It took so long I used all my wine and now I have the expense of filling it!

George Nakashima would be proud of you.

Is that lacquer for the finish ?
