This week I managed to complete my second wine barrel chair… this one for my wife.

This time I used the lid of the barrel for the seat, being able to flex the lid to a concave surface. I also chose to make the legs curve outwards. The seat sits on a swivel mechanism, with a 3° tilt.

As with the first stool, this chair is made with white oak stave, a colored burgundy by the wine.

The finish is Varathane Professional 1100, matte sheen, 2 coats.

Hope you like it.

Wow, that is really great looking and very creative! It deserves to be a daily top three.

Looks great. I think the out-splayed legs are more attractive. Perhaps not, but it appears that it would make it more stable as well.
Where are you getting this swivel/tilt mechanism?

The tilt-swivel mechanism was purchased at Lee Valley. They offer two types of swivel, and both are heavy duty and top quality.

Both styles of legs… concave or covexed,... offer the same stability and same footprint.

Again nice work. I like the seat of this one and the back of your previous one. The legs look cool either way. I like the experimentation you are doing.

These would make great stools at a wine tasting room. Maybe when things get back to normal you could market them.
They could place them 6’ apart.
