Here’s the other half of my Buffalo Trace whiskey barrel that I used to make another table. This one is without a lid and instead I used a piece of glass to cover the table for a different look. All of the charcoal inside was sanded off but left enough just so you can put things in there without them turning black. This oak is so solid it’s almost impossible to countersink a screw. :)

Barrel is stained and has a redish/orange tinge to it in sunlight and the top oak piece is finished with waterlox.

No sooner did I post this, a friend purchased it from me.

Thanks for looking.

That’s wonderful. I’d love to have one of those in my Man Cave.

Another great looking coffee table—I like the glass top so that you can see the #4 char Buffalo Trace puts on its casks!

Buffalo Trace produces several of my favorite bourbons, and I think I’ll raise a glass of one of them tonight in honor of this table!

Nice piece. We could share a glass or two at this table.

Very nice. I’ve had one cut in half for 2 months now just waiting for me to find some time.
Hope mine turns out as nice as yours….......what color stain…......very attractive.

Thanks Mike. I used Minwax’s puritan pine stain. It came out a little different than I anticipated but still nice.

Either lay the barrel on it’s side and measure until you have even sides, or take out a couple of the inner rings and then screw the end rings in and pull a middle stave out. I thought I cut one of the barrels in the center only to find out that it wasn’t. ha
