Topic tags/keywords: barrel staves stave oak wine whiskey used barrels barrel staves

I am on the east coast of Maryland, I am looking for a source of used barrel staves, either wine or whiskey. I dont mind buying a quantity if the price is right and shipping reasonable.
Any suggestions or contacts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Erik

I bought 6 wine barrels in Oliver British Columbia last Summer, they all had red wine in them at one time and were a real nice burgundy colour on the inside. I paid $30.00 for each. I broke them all down and now have a pile of staves, 12 real nice heads and all of the barrel rings. I plan on making bistro style tables, chairs and stools with them. The biggest mistake I made when breaking them down was not keeping the staves from each barrel separate as they all have a little bit of a different curvature. They are all white oak.

Are you looking for the barrels intact or just the staves. I get mine on a pallet, already broken down. The top staves have more of a curve as opposed to the bottom staves, which get flattened out due to weight of the staves above.

Joseph, where do you get the pallets you mention?
