A variation ofthisplate and glass rack design may be made by paneling the lower opening. The piece shouldbe finished dark to give the best general effect. If hard pine or oak is usedsome prepared dark stain will give a good finish. A very pleasing rich yellow brown is obtained on oak by using the bichromate of potash stain. If adeeper brown is wanted, rub the bichromate stain with boiled oil and burnt umber; apply wax or a thin coat of shellac.
