The shelves were made by the cabinet maker. The cool thing is that they have a slightly recessed top (with a lip around the edge) to hold the non-slip insert in place so if the glasses are a little wet, it's not an issue.

This is Dave from McMillan Cabinetmakers, and yes, we did make the shelves (and the cabinets). They are of wood with opaque urethane finish. The galley rail and inset drip mat are from Hafele USA and the aluminum brackets are from Doug Mockett. The lower shelf also hides recessed LED strip lighting. They turned out very nicely!

I honestly can't recall. I think it was ebony but we did not have the floor finisher open up the grain with water so while it absorbed color into the grain, it did not make everything opaque.

It was a standard Minwax color. I think was a standard color.
