  1. Wine Barrel Stool

    Picked up a used wine barrel and am toying with what I can make out of it. This is a stool I use while building at my workbench. I am planning to improve on this idea with my next project, we'll see how it works out.
  2. Wine Barrel Cooler

    This is the third Wine Barrel Cooler I've made. The first two were just to learn from and this one is the first one that I'm actually getting paid for. There's over 200 stainless steel screws in it, the holes all drilled with one Irwin 7/32 bit. I used 6 inch strap hinges for the lid and added...
  3. Napa Wine Barrel Lazy Suzan

    This is the top end of a used wine barrel--stained with red wine (cabernet?) that I made into a Lazy Susan for my secretary…I was a bit late (last weds was Secretary's Day) but it took a little more time to break it down and then glue it back up. So I am excited to give it to Julie tomorrow...
  4. Wine Barrel to Planter Transformation

    Hi Lumberjocks, This is our first ever project that we publish and we hope that you will like it. The idea came from John's Family when he was asked to change an old wine barrel that they had into a planter for his mother. We decided to record and videotape our project and after a lot of...
  5. Wine Barrel Stave Adirondack Chair

    This is not my chair and I am not taking credit for it, I just wanted to post it to show how beautiful these chairs can be when a ture craftsman makes one, not like my simplified and cheaper version. This chair was made by Jonathan Black of Bella Barrel (www.bellabarrel.com). These are pics of...
  6. Wine Barrel Head Clock

    I made this clock from the center portion of a wine barrel head. I routered the edges and drilled a large hole in the back with a forsner bit to thin the material and form a pocket where the clock mechnism is mounted. You can get the clock mechanism on line or at a craft store like Michael's...
  7. Wine Barrel Napkin Rings

    There were some quick stocking stuffers I made for Christmas 2009. I marked off a barrel stave so that I had square pieces that measured 2 1/2 to 3 in. square. They are big for napkin rings but my wife says she likes the "chunkey" look and they work well with large napkins. I cut a 1 1/2 in...
  8. Wine Barrel Stave Candle Holder

    Forgive me for a lengthy description of what many of you can do with your eyes closed. It's my first real wood working project since I took a shop class in 6th grade. See, I like to wine taste and I frequently see things for sale at wineries that people have crafted out of wine barrels. It...
  9. Wine Barrel Old Glory with mounted F/A-18 Hornet

    I love making flags from old wine or whiskey barrels but I needed something to amp this one up a little. I added a Sapele F/A-18 Hornet and seems to be a nice finishing touch. Fly Navy.
  10. Wine Barrel Adirondack Chairs

    Yet another take on Adirondack Chairs made form old Wine Barrel staves. After working out the sequence, I got assembly time down to about 2 hours per chair (we built a total of 5). However, this project is deceiving… sanding and finishing took many more hours. In the future, I'll sand, stain...
  11. Big Barrel

    My friend Jim wanted me to build him a giant barrel to be used as an eye catching sign for his partner "Chrissy's" antique store to be opened soon in Schapville Illinois. Lettering will be added to both ends to say the business name and the barrel will then be placed next to the road to be seen...
  12. US Navy EA-18 Growler

    The wood shop smells of red wine after cutting up old wine barrel staves. I love to repurpose old wood and enjoy creating something totally new. This Growler is 27 inches long and 22 inches wide. I left rough instead of putting a clear coat on so I can smell the wine. My NY's plan is to start...
  13. A stave and steel

    I'm still working with my stash of wine barrel wood, trying out some different ideas. On this one I took some .25" steel rod and wrapped it around bottles to form the "pig-tails" then drilled through the stave and welded tabs on the backside to keep the rod from spinning. Finished with a honey...
  14. Wine Barrel Old Glory

    Love making these wine barrel flags. Each one has it's own look and comes to life after clear coating.
  15. Napa Wine Barrel Bistro Table

    I have made dozens of candle holders from barrel staves, but this was my first venture into wine barrel furniture. Because of all the curves and coves of each stave this turned out to be one of my most challenging projects. For a flair I decided to have the staves come through the top. In my...
  16. 2nd wine barrel chair

    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...
  17. White Wine Barrel Chair

    Hi: I've made another custom-made wine-barrel bar stool. I ordered five large wine barrels from a local guy, who delivered them to my door. HEAVY! And made of white oak! The last two photos show the barrel as I disassembled it in my shop. This time I use staves from a white wine barrel. It is...
  18. Wine Barrel End Table

    Hi I recently completed another wine-barrel project, this time an end table. Using the lid of the barrel for the table top, I fashioned four legs to provide the support. The lid is attached on the underside with 1" plywood, to which I fastened four supports for the legs. I decided to hide the...
  19. Wine Barrel Shop Stool

    Hi As part of an attempt to replace old and worn-out shop furniture, I recently made a round-top stool from the staves of a white wine barrel. The stool seat is actually made of barrel staves laminated together, and then shaped with the band saw and hand planes. Supporting the seat is a high...
  20. Wine Barrel Plant Stand

    Hi: I recently completed a project for my wife… a plant stand made from wine barrel staves. I used wine barrel lids for the two platforms, and staves for the legs, as well as barrel bands for around the legs. The result is a sturdy and attractive - in a artisan sort of way - plant stand that...
