Wine Stave Chair

I was asked to build a wine barrel stave chair. I got into it and found that they are very difficult to get tight fitting joints and I don’t like putting my name on anything that will fall apart, so I decided to use carriage bolts instead of deck screws. I even had a little helper to make sure the seat was just right!

That’s cool and if it passed his it must be good. I like where you put the bung hole.

Very clever. Could it be a rocking chair with the bent staves?

Great looking Adirondack chair! And I’ll bet it smells good, too!

I have seen the rocking chair done. I was asked about doing one of those for a front porch.

where did you get the plans for this? I would like to make these for Christmas presents. Do you have any pictures from the sides or back? Thanks.

I did not have any plans. I am currently doing a video on how I did them.

Have your say...
