Process

All items are handcrafted and designed from reclaimed wine barrels. The wood is white oak, which has its own unique markings and characteristics from the wine barrel making process. After disassembling the wine barrel, each stave is sanded and stained with either a dark walnut or natural stain to enhance the grain of the white oak. Once all staves are dry from the staining process they are used to create all the pieces you see on my website.

Almost every piece I create is made with nothing but wood and steel from the original wine barrel. I use no templates, guides, instructions or directions in the creation of my pieces. ¬†Due to the unique nature of materials used in my designs, every piece will reflect its own personality. Variations can occur in color, texture, grain and final finished appearance. All measurements and weights are approximates. Since each barrel piece has its own characteristics, each piece is truly unique. These charming variations add to the originality and authenticity and should not be considered a defect or flaw. Custom sizing can be done on most items. Barrel Heads come with a variety of cooperage imprints and will vary from table to table. If you are looking for a design that you don’t see here, please contact me! I am constantly creating new pieces that may not yet appear on my web site. Optional¬†stain colors for tables, benches and stools are available.
