I was commissioned to make this table by a friend. She went to Napa Valley and toured a winery for a romantic get away. As a gift she ordered the wine barrel and had it shipped to me. I didn’t realize how difficult this would be once I removed the rings. The entire barrel wants to fall apart…including the upper and lower lids. (No glue). I ended up disassembling the entire thing and gluing it back together. Designed the table base to cradle the top. And turned a new bung since there was not one upon arrival. Hell of a project, that I think came out fantastic. I’m happy I got this opportunity, and am pleased to show it off to all of the LJ’s.

Wow. Looks great. That is more difficult than it looks. Great job.

Gary- she ordered 500 corks online and filled the inside with corks and put a glass top on it. I will see if I have the pic with the top on it.

Wow. You made a great base cradle and I love the finish. Were you able to get two tables from the one barrel? What’s the weight of the empty barrel?

I building a swing away wall bar with the other half. The finished table weighs about 100 pounds maybe. Not real bad

Wow! Great Job. Thanks for posting this. If I make one I’ll build on your experience and screw the rings to the slats that I want to keep before I cut the rings and remove any slats. Thanks again.
