A rare sloping horizontal style tramway slate wine rack with 4 holes. This has a natural sloping edge which resembles some of the steep descents in the old slate quarries that fill the landscapes all around North Wales.
Find out more about the techniques used here This rack reminds me of the tramways that ran through the levels in the quarries, used to haul the slate down to the trains, thus tramway slate wine rack.
I then retain all the cores and more importantly re use them, splitting them down as coasters. Finishing them with oil and a felted base.
Holes are approximately 90mm in diameter. Smaller beer bottle or larger champagne holes can be drilled upon request.
Therefore the perfect size for storing both a standard size wine bottle and a slightly larger sparkling wine bottle.
This fairly flat surface lends itself well to carving names and dates to make this gift even more unique.
Perfect for positioning on a kitchen worktop.
Grey with splashes of rusty bronze tints.
Bespoke commissions are currently turned around within 2 weeks however this may be longer during busy periods.
A slightly larger version of this is also available on the website 5swr39
Slate is a great material that maintains a constant temperature and it will chill your wine nicely. It will not expand and contract like other materials.
Please do remember that each piece of slate is different. I cannot guarantee the exact replication of any designs and I would not wish to.
Finally, if you can’t decide which rack to purchase, I would strongly recommend a trip to the workshop where I have over 100 racks in stock.
