This happens to be my first wood project since high school. I became interested when a friend showed me a coffee table he wanted made of a recycled wine barrel. I started checking on barrels at my local vineyards, watching videos on Youtube, and next thing you know I’m making a chair.

Please feel free to critique, compliment, or offer tips!

Nice work. A chair is on my list…. Check my barrel work… I used Bourbon barrels. Did you have any trouble getting a barrel?

great looking chair. I’ve seen a few of these wine barrel Adirondacks, but yours is the best one yet.

I love this idea and the wine glass holder in the arm is a nice touch. Is it comfortable though?

Love it, aesthetically pleasing adirondack chairs are rare and recycled and what looks pretty ergonomic too! love it. :)

Too nice for the outdoors. Explain your joinery techniques, specifically the attaching the rear legs and arms to the front legs. There doesn’t look to be much wood to join in to for the arms on top of the front legs.

also, the natural wine stain is pretty cool color wise.

Great substitute for purple heart! Would love to hear more about the process.
