Barrel Tables

  • June 3, 2017

I had found a few oak barrels at a local factory. they were going to thro them away, so instead of having them be in a dump I decided to make some tables. The barrels were from Bourbon Factories back in the 50's. They seemed dried and ratted up, but after disassembling them with some help from a Ryobi drill and saws all the wood seemed very good. It was great to cut the wood as all you could smell was bourbon in the air. All cuts were made with a very old abused Ryobi table saw that just won't quit, still cut great with fresh blades on it and some cuts were done via a Ryobi miter saw.
I tried to maintain natural characteristics of the barrels, like the Bung hole, the metal rings and such. The sofa table has a top made form tin ceiling tiles rescued from a demolition of an old building. The tables were either sold for cost of materials or given to friends as gifts, all of which appreciate the character of the tables.
