Gaëtan at Barrier WoodCraft was asked to make a shelf for ceramics shop ’t Zwaluwnest. He decided to rely on bread racks from the past and chose to make the shelf using traditional joinery (without screws or nails), except for the wheels at the bottom to move the rack. The biggest challenge here for Gaëtan was to do as much as possible with hand tools. ‹ Return to Gallery
Since the rack would be placed in a ceramics shop full of handmade bowls, plates, vases and more, the shelf obviously had to breathe authenticity. It was decided to go for the Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C "Pure", in combination with the Rubio Monocoat Pre-Aging "Smoke Light." The Pre-Aging gives the new wood an instant aged look which is then finished and protected using the Oil Plus 2C. And thus Gaëtan obtained the rustic result that you can admire.
