Wine Barrel Wine Bar

My friend wanted a new bar and had three wine barrels, so we opened some wine and came up with a plan. We wanted to cut the barrels in half to create storage behind the bar, so first we screwed the metal braces to the staves (to keep the barrels from falling apart) and then used a grinder to cut the braces. We placed the barrels in an L-shape so one barrel faced the main walkway. This also gave us room for the wine fridge behind the bar. We built a six inch platform underneath the barrels to raise it up to bar height. The top is made from two layers of plywood (¾” for stability and a sanded birch plywood showing). To cover the edge and provide some depth to the bar top we added a shoe molding to the edge and a window casing on the top of the bar. The final step was staining all of the wood a dark mahogany to make the barrels really stand out.

This is such a cool project! The dark stain on top and bottom really brings it all together- perfect choice! Did you do anything special to the barrels in the way of a finish?

Thank you, we thought the same thing about the dark stain and lighter color barrels. The wine barrels were left as-is because they were in great shape and looked really good. I believe two of them are French oak and one is American oak.
