I was given an old wine barrel for my birthday , first i took it apart numbering the parts , with a drill and wire brush i rubbed the metal bands that were very rusty, then rubbed all the wood parts, left the inside so to keep the aroma .
Made a middle shelf reinforced the bottom made four blocks for feet, stained the wood with red mahogany three coats of poly satin finish. I tried to hinge the doors but they were to heavy and gave up instead i place the doors either side and bolted them in that position i think it looks okay.

Thanks for sharing,

Man, I hate you. I wish you would have measured the staves so I could reproduce a barrel. The catch for me is figuring out the rad along the edge of the staves which will form the belly. it has to be simple. also, why are the staves different widths?

Real nice job on this one.

That jack daniels commercial they air during the fights keeps me guessing and begat self loathing because I cant figure it out.
