For next Christmas, it’s the 2nd finished gift on my list. It is intended to look old and distressed, kinda fits my primitive revival style.

Ash, acrylic brown paint, sharpie black and wipe on poly.

-- on Wednesday's I go shopping, and have buttered scones for tea...

Hairy, this is over the top cool man. Looks like one o them fine bourbon barrels from some of these many, many distilleries here in Kentucky, the bourbon capital of the world. Way cool.

Hairy, great job!! Looks like Beer Kegs we used to have in Australia, very clever idea.

Cool toothpick holder! It really looks like an authentic wine barrel but in a small scale. Great job!
