This is a unique project. It can be used as a centerpiece or for other decorative functions. It looks nice with cut flowers displayed in it, fruit, or candles. My wife made a beautiful arrangement for Christmas with red candles and flowers.
It is built with three or four barrel staves. The handles are made from the barrel hoops. On the bottom, you can see it is held together with pieces of barrel hoop and pan head screws. I cut two feet from a barrel stave so that it sits flat. I finished with polyurethane.
I have seen these for sale in wine tasting rooms and stores for $75. I have seen other similar projects with one handle that runs from end to end, but I like the two handles better.
Comments and tips are welcome.
