I know I’m not the first to build one of these but this is the first one I’ve ever built including cutting the barrel which was a bit of a challenge but then the first one always is. The wine barrel is french oak the table top is red oak that I ran the face through my table saw with a blade that I bent a tooth on to get the rough sawn look. The fun part is when you are cutting the barrel you get that nice smell of the wine. I plan on making two end table out of another barrel to go with this.

Nice project, I might have to make one, where did you get the barrel?

Very nice. Was it difficult fitting the legs to the contours of the barrel?

Not too bad, time consuming more than anything. I measured the width of the barrel where I wanted to put the legs, made a paper template then made a wood template from that, since paper is too flimsy but got me close, out of some scrap pine. Once I got the wood template cut and sanded to fit nice I used that to cut the legs.

I have one of these builds on my to-do list but keep procrastinating because I have no room in my house for a coffee table. Essentially I will have to build it and sell it or give it away…...but for whatever reason, I just have to make one.
Yours turned out very nice. I like your bread board edge and the curves on the side of the top.
Well done.
