One of a kind Whiskey Barrel Interior Designs

One of a kind Whiskey Barrel Interior Designs

We have lots of interesting and One of a kind Whiskey Barrel Interior Designs here at the Hungarian Workshop. We have been handcrafting furniture from Wine and Whiskey barrels for over a decade. Each piece is created by hand selecting barrels staves and cleaned up just enough to make smooth and vibrant. By only sanding down the wood to a point we keep the oak natural patinas from years in the aging service. There will be visible markings and stains deeply embedded in the wood, showing off the materials true history. Each piece will look different giving them character very unique to one another. Some maybe lighter or darker. However, when it comes to sets we keep the color somewhat uniform.

When we break down barrels we take them apart by the hundreds. This allows for a good solid mixed batch. We also separate all the skinnier staves which we can only use in certain parts of a couple pieces. Like the backrest of the lounge chair that has the wider backrest, we use eight skinny staves. However, a barrel will have roughly ten of these small pieces and we don’t always make lounge chairs. Therefor, we end up with a huge pallet of these and Im constantly tryin to come up with new designs to eliminate waste.

Even our cut off pieces that we accumulate by the bin full every week, I try to up-cycle as well. We used to sell these to DIY-er and BBQ-ers. But unfortunately again the amount we gather is just insane. The amount of these scraps we could sell off isn’t sufficient. That is why this past few months I have been messing around with some decorative wall paneling ideas and came out with two. One is where I use the cut off pieces and one is where I use all those extra skinny staves.

Another pile of extra material I have way way too much of is the metals hoops or rings which ever you want to call them. They re actually the barrel’s bands but that isn’t searched for enough in google. We use these as edging around our tables and footrest around the bar stools. Yet again, each barrel has six of these and even in a complete bar set we only use four. For a complete bar set we need about two barrel’s worth of wood so we are left with eight additional metal rings. There was a time when lots of people wanted these old rusty hoops for home decor or gardening project. Now we hardly get any inquiries for them. This is the part when usually people suggest to me, just to sell them off at dirt cheap prices to keep all this “junk” out of your shop. Well I would gladly my friend but with the weight of these and over all sizes the shipping of them is big. Very big, huge in fact.

“Lots of extra material we need to try and use up!!!” | SHOP NOW

To ship about 12 metal bands the box will be about 24″x24″x20″ at 30lbs give or take. This would cost $80 just to ship. Another couple of bucks for the box and the time it takes to package you are now at $85 modestly. If I sell each hoop for just a $1 each the price is now over $100. Not a lot of people need these hoops that bad. Also just the amount of effort to sell them is way more than the potential $12 we would get. Same with the left over scraps. These mainly have a weight issue when shipping. Even a small box can reach up to 50+lbs and soon after that another box size would be considered oversized with a bunch of additional surcharges. All in all, we are better off coming out with some new One of a kind Whiskey Barrel Interior Designs to stay as efficient as possible.

Most clients of our purchase our furniture for outdoor use. When it comes to the lounge chairs they usually end up in beautiful remote cabins and backyards and decks. To turn things more towards the inside of the home we started doing leather upholstery. We found a great supplier of fine quality Italian Full Grain leather which matches our distressed or rustic material. Full grain means you get the see the hides imperfection. No, not holes but the actual cow’s markings. This just means the that leather wont be a solid plain color like some sort of fake fabric. The leather is very smooth and importantly thick and strong. This also means it is ideal for heavy commercial use which we have proven to be true in the past. One our biggest friends or parents I guess you could call them is Stone Brewing Company in sunny San Diego. We have teamed up with them in 2012 and have made them hundreds of chairs, table and bar stools in the past.

“Interior Leather Line for your home!” | SHOP NOW

The leather stools come in seven different colors. Each named after a drink or spirit. We have two kinds of red. One light and one much more dark. These ones are called Sangria and Merlot. Then we have a black and white, Stout and Riesling. The white is more of a silver-ish bright white not a pure white. Then we have three kinds of browns. Bourbon a standard saddle like light brown. Espresso which is a dark coffee or chocolate brown and Scotch that is a smokey light tan. Everyone has a specific taste so I figured having a somewhat big selection of colors to choose from will be important. Fortunately this has been proven to be true. So far we have sold every color not problem and often we get orders for a mix of colors. The one that has been the most popular tho is the Merlot. The deep dark red leather with a Whiskey barrel made stool has been number one. They are on sale right now so if you ready to make a purchase click here!!

Our whiskey barrel bar set furniture come with memory swivels. These allow the user to rotate 180 degrees each direction and settle back into the front facing position when not in use. This is a very nice attribute for anyone who is a neat freak and likes things uniform at all times. Im one of theses folks. Hence why I choose this swivel option. The bar stools with the backrest have a 1/4″ steel holding the staves as the backrest. It has the perfect angle for ones back and even tho the bar is thick, it still has a mild spring like action for maximum comfort. The foot rest is the barrel’s metal hoops. These also help the four legs stay rigid and strong. All hardware we use are rated for commercial use. We actually started all our furniture for commercial use. Our main and oldest partner is Stone Brewing Company in San Diego. They carry our chairs and bar stools in almost all their locations.

The bar tables will sometimes feature some sort of distillery stamping or stenciling. We try to clean the barrel tops only so much where the writing on them can still be made out. We usually get barrels from Jim Beam, Buffalo Trace, Maker’s Mark, Woodford Reserve, Heaven Hill and Four Roses just to name a few. If you purchase and have one preferred one let us know and we can try to find a top from that distillery.

Everything You Need To Know About Premium Barrel Furniture

Whiskey Barrel Saddle Bar Stool

We at the Hungarian Workshop have been up-cycling wine and whiskey barrels for over a decade. We have shipped world wide and have a reputation for creating fine quality works of “art”. Functional art that is. We try to focus on the creativity of using mainly barrel and only barrel material in our furniture. By this I mean you wont see a bunch of factory produced parts with a couple barrel staves thrown in and calling it barrel furniture. Next time you find some inexpensive “barrel furniture”, just take a look at what percent of material actually came from the barrel.

One of our best sellers is our Whiskey Barrel Saddle Bar Stools. This is a design that is simple and very very functional. It is sleek, it can be stowed under a counter easily and it is made 100% of only barrel wood. Even better that this design calls for lots of skinny smaller staves. We accumulate theses by the pallet full so being able to use them for other than fire wood makes me feel better. We try to use and donate scraps but the amount we have is tremendous. In my down time I usually am trying to figure out a new way to use left over material. After all, it is money on the table.

Everything You Need To Know About Premium Barrel Furniture

When is comes to shipping our furniture everything ships for “FREE”. Meaning the cost to get it to you is already in price. No extra surprise delivery chargers. With a way of the internet market these days you have to offer this “free” shipping concept. Unfortunately this has sky rocketed the price of our lounge chairs. Anything we have to ship as freight costs almost just as much as the furniture it self. This is because our chairs don’t require any assembly. We could design something you would need to assemble then just ship with FedEx. But, then you would end up with some rickety or wobbly crap you have to spend time trying to put together. Most of our customer prefer the additional cost where the chairs just get dropped off and thats it.

Everything You Need To Know About Premium Barrel Furniture

Another great attribute of ours is our customer service. We have great reviews and lots of repeat buyer because we take care of everyone very well. Our main goal is your satisfaction. After all, we don’t want to work all day building furniture if you don’t enjoy them. The only way people these days can continue with hands on work if some satisfaction comes out from it. So far it has been a blast running the Hungarian Workshop and hopefully we have another steady 10 years and more ahead of us.

Interesting new designs from reclaimed Kentucky Barrels

We have been sourcing our barrels from Kentucky for over a decade now. The amount of work that goes into making a barrel is tremendous so giving them a second life is must. Most barrels get just chopped up into planters or simply used as decor. Even tho they dry apart and collapse thats how most see their final days. Barrel don’t have any glue or nails so once they are empty, the oak starts to shrink, and the rings start to fall off. Some try to salvage by screwing each stave to the band but that only works to a certain point. In other words, you end up with is a rickety old mess. That being said let us show you our Interesting new designs from reclaimed Kentucky Barrels.

Each of our furniture pieces are handmade by expert craftsman. All staves are cleaned and sanded smooth just enough to leave the oaks patina while showing off its beautiful history. The Kentucky Barrel wood will have charring on the inside and all sorts of unique color patterns on the outside. For instance, some are light brown, dark brown, some red from the rusted steel and even deep forest greens.

“giving barrels a second life for over a decade!”

One of our best and most popular designs are the leather upholstered barstools.

New Leather Swiveling Bar Stools Are Back On Sale

Wine Barrel w/ Sangria Leather

In the past we did a line of Interior leather line which was widely popular. However, as the pandemic hit our suppliers weren’t able to get us all the leather we needed in a steady stream. So for two years we had to pull the line and focus on coming out with a few new things. As the time past we were able to get back on track slowly. So to start we are reintroducing the wine and whiskey barrel bar stools with leather cushions. These have been a huge hit for home and commercial customers as well. These stools provide the same reclaimed rustic charm but with a elegant addition along with maximum comfort. The Italian Full Grain Leather is soft and beautiful and with the color options you can choose which one fits your kitchen or bar best.

We have two reds, Merlot and Sangria. One is dark and deep and the other is light and vibrant. The three browns are Bourbon, Espresso and Scotch. Bourbon is a light traditional western brown while Scotch is a smokey tan. Espresso is nice rich coffee/chocolate brown. Last is Stout our black. This goes awesome with a line of whiskey barrel stools if you want to keep things dark.

“New Leather Swiveling Bar Stools Are Back On Sale”

An important fact to keep in mind while looking through our photos is that the leather will always look much lighter in the pictures because of the photo studio lights. The color swatches will showcase their shades much more accurately. Another important fact about themItalian leather is that they are full grain. Which means the hides can have imperfections. Meaning the cow could have had a scar or skin blemishes. The reason we chose this style is because it goes much better with our reclaimed wood. All real and natural patinas.
