This was a large Project for a Rookie but it turned out so well I have plans for 3 more. I have made small items but never one like this. In doing this I learned a lot about glue ups, Routers and Finishes. The wine barrel is 70 gal, stands 39” high, 24” at the top. The top is 54” circle by 1 ¼”. 23” glass center. I got a good barrel and only had to do some light sanding to bring out the oak grain. The table top was 6/4 cherry planed down to around 1 ¼” . I glued 7 boards together to give me my planned 54” finished circle. Since the boards were larger than I normally do. I glues the first 2 and then one at a time till done. It came out pretty darn good and only spend a few hours sanding flush. Made a $10 jig for my router and help my breath as I made the first pass and the cuts matched after one turn. Took 5 pass’s to make the cut. I then cut out a ledge for the glass center, I wanted the glass( tempered ) and top to be level. It came out sweet. I then cut the rest of inners out. Sanded and router the whole top again. Finished with believe it or not, Pre-stain !! It looked so good after I put that on that it needed nothing else. I put 5 coated of wipe on Poly and a little wax and the top was done. I mounted the top with 6” shelf brackets under side you can’t see and the wine/beer was ready to be had..

Ben, Thanks. I got the barrel off Craigs list and it took some time to get it looking this good. The cherry top really came out great . the center piece will be made into a matching lazy Susan . Now I have to hunt for some more barrels to make a few more for some buddies.
