My uncle wanted barrel bar on his country side house’s terrace. He got himself a barrel and asked me if I can make him a table top from old spalted and wormy hole oak boards he gave me (nothing which can’t be fixed with wood filler). It’s 1m diameter, 18 mm thick – biscuit joinery. Finish – 3 layers non glossy varnish. I made perfect circle with my elipse/circle jig (see on one of my posts).

Fits the barrel nicely. Time for a drink.

Thanks all for views and comments. I’m too modest – and hardly that this project deserves Daily top 3.

Well Ivan I think its well deserved.
You did a very good job, I am assuming the barrel was full upon commencement of the project and you had to work very hard getting it empty!

Its certainly a striking effect
