I made this for a customer last week, the lid opens up for storage. These whiskey/bourbon barrels are fresh from Kentucky so there is still a pretty sweet smell when you open the lid. Thanks and Enjoy, Corey in SC

Nice work. You have successfully made what may be the manliest coffee table ever.

Joyboy, why would you want to get rid of the smell? It smells better then all the girly things our wives and girlfriends make us have in our houses. BinghamtonEd is right: this thing is pretty manly.

Super awesome and I can only hope that where you took those pictures is where you live sir. Everything in the first picture is beautiful; the whitetail, the table, the whiskey, the outdoors!

Top notch coffee table!

That’s awesome. What’s up with the antlers though? That’ll scratch your finish!

Looks good! We actually just finished one up too—used a Buffalo Trace barrel and a big slab of pine for the top. I love that pour stain—our barrel didn’t have any stain at all around the hole in the side, but I wish that it did.

Pretty sweet. How do you go about getting whisky barrels?
