These are made from wine barrel staves from a Napa Valley wine barrel. French oak…from Cabernet Sauvignon…two coats of tung oil and two of poly.

Cool, Matt! I guess they will not only supply light but also a nice aroma!

30” of snow here, yesterday. Schools closed tomorrow (I was supposed to substitute)!

Very nice Matt.
Now get back to your boat, no not the rubber ducky, the real one.
Hey, I recognize that mitre gauge. Yours is a 520 if I remember correctly.

Good idea to make those with wine barrel boards – they have this curve.

Nice color on the wood. Looks like a great gift or donation.

These look great Matt and I love the repurposing of the staves.

great project idea, just saw these at our family Christmas get together… great little candle holders.
I rec’d a similar gift which was a coat rack made from an oak barrel piece, works and looks great…
