Project Information

This one took me awhile to complete, but here is my version of this chair. All of the staves are Qtr. Sawn White Oak and had to be pre drilled for every screw, and I lost several bits in the chair. This chair now sits in a furniture store as some of my other furniture hoping to be sold. All comments positive and negative are welcomed.

Thanks Ken, I hope your wine barrel is easier to deal with than this. It was some of the hardest lumber I've ever dealt with.

Amos, it has 3 coats of polyurethane.

Well done. I doubt that chair will hang around too long. Someone will get a great addition to their man cave.

Great looking whisky barrel Adirondack!

Bourbon is required to be barreled in new, charred white oak barrels, so most likely this was used at one time to age bourbon. I'll bet it smells nice, when sipping a fine Kentucky bourbon!

Hey MBD,

Matt
Nice job I guess most of the time was consumed in getting the Whiskey out of the barrel !!
Couldn't have been too much left though looks like you have done a very well constructed Task.

I hope you sat in it and refelected!

Mean Dean, it was a Jim Beam barrel and I have the lid on a side table on our front porch.

Robert, this chair sat in my shop for about a year and a half, so there were many evenings sitting in that chair with a beverage. Its kinda sad to see it go but I have 3 more barrels at the shop.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to help empty any of the barrels but the shop sure did smell good while I was cutting the staves.
