I started with a genuine Jack Daniels whiskey barrel on this one. I used some antique heart pine for the top and legs, I even sawed one of the pegs in half and is featured in the top. In the begining of this project I visioned an old heart pine floor that you would find in a old time hardware store that has seen years of foot traffic and use. I tried to capture the look of that floor in the top of this coffee table. I think Mr. Daniels would be proud…Thanks and Enjoy!

Interesting way to re-purpose something. I like it. The next to last pic (bottom left) looks like the barrel is in a saw mill or something. How did you saw it in half? And what about the iron rings? Did you remove them first, then saw? Or cut them and re-attach. I’m curious.

I layed out my cut line on the barrel first. I then fastened the hoops to the barrel side that I wanted to keep. Then I cut the hoops shy of the cut line with a grinder. Last thing was to put it on my sawmill and “joint” the top flat. The sawmill also serves as a whiskey barrel jointer!

I wish I had one of those so that I could put it on my patio and ice-down several cases of beer. It would have been great yesterday for a Superbowl party. I don’t know if “Jack” would approve.

Wonderful, just wonderful. You can almost taste the character in that piece.
I have an oak plank with a bullet in it. This project makes me want to use it in a project.

All you need now is a fiber optic light coming out of the hole, to make it look like the barrel is leaking!

Wow..Corey…! That really brought back memories. I made a lot of barrel furniture back in the late 1960’s when I was able to get oak barrels for $5 each.
I only kept one from and it reminded me of the one you made except I put doors in both ends.
