sorry only 2 pics I never took any myself my son had these on his phone.we made this a few months back,it was for his dentists assistant.being new to this he didn’t get her budget before the build,half way through he tells her it will be 500 hundred she says I cant afford that!so he settles for 300,he didn’t lose money but he sure didn’t make much eighther!oh well live and learn.half a wine barrel mounted on some 8/4 oak legs with a 3/4 oak top on a piano hinge.he screwed all the bands to the barrel before we cut it and painted all the metal with flat black rustoleum.top is finish with a dark stain and sprayed with rattle can poly.his design.he still has half abarrel left so if he gets another project he can recoup the loss.

That’s a awesome looking table. Wouldn’t mind owning one myself. We can’t make every one a home run but as long as you can get to first it’s not a lost. Great family project.

thanks bob these barrels make great tables for indoor or outdoor,i think he paid about 70 bucks for this one from a brewery,so you cut in half and sell or share with a friend,or trade for some good hootch!

Great job pottzy...


sorry only 2 pics…

You are forgiven… just!

,it was for his dentists assistant.

A fitting present of a coffin... if the assistant is not that competent.


..... half a wine barrel….

... nothing to the memories made…


Hope you got to drink the contents first…. no wonder only 2 pictures.

PS. What memories? After a barrel of wine… I can only handle the content of a piddly 4L cask!

All you need to do is make a few thousand more and you can buy your own brewery… THEN you can drink the contents first!... and then you’ll want to drink (oops… make) a couple of thousand more (barrels).
