Barrel coffee table

This project was definitely a fun one, I've always wanted to make something with a barrel and my fiance and I needed a new coffee table and so the idea was born. The challenge was working with something that wants to fall apart after cutting the metal bands that hold it together, but it turned out beautiful and strong. I've gotten a lot of compliments from family and friends and I'm proud of this one.
