Cherry Wine Rack

The picture didn't come out....look in my photos, I haven't quite figured out how to install a photo into the thread.

Any recommendations on staining and finishing this? With the "racks" in the front and back it'll be hard to stain this after it is completely assembled so I'm looking for any advice or feedback.

C-man! Your input would be beneficial here if you don't mind!

Some possible methods

Shake-and-bake: Mix a stain from powder using half the recommended water. Place wine rack in hefty steel sack with about a quart of stain. Get some air in the bag so it's "puffy". Tie off tightly and shake vigorously for at least 3 minutes (your kids can help with this part.) If the rack survives unbroken, simply wipe off the excess stain and your done.

Spray-and-wash: Remove all racks from dishwasher and replace with wine rack. Fill detergent dispenser with gel stain. Wash on gentle cycle. You'll probably want to run the dishwasher sans-dishes for a couple of cycles after this.

Garden-and-go: Fill garden sprayer with water-soluble stain. Put nozzle setting between "mist" and "spray". Hang wine rack from tree in your back yard facing neighbor's fence. Walk around piece spraying all nooks and crannies as well as continuous faces. Wait 30 minutes, and hang wine rack inverted. Then repeat spray. Wipe excess and allow to air-cure.

Dip-and-do: Fill 55-gallon drum with stain. Use a cherry-picker to suspend wine rack. Carefully lower rack into drum until submerged. Wait 30 minutes. Raise wine rack and allow to drip for 10 minutes. Wipe excess and allow to air dry. Contact EPA for disposal of drum.

The wine rack looks great, you did a great job on it and your sister will be very please, I'm sure. Nice work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
