Rustic Whiskey barrel rings for sale again!

We have well over several thousand whiskey barrel rings up for grabs right now for a very low price. Just $75 will get you 12 rustic bands with free shipping. Each order will have 3 different size bands which are not cleaned. This means rust and some dirt maybe present. These are pre boxed and ready to ship within a week of ordering.

Rustic Whiskey barrel rings for sale again!

We typically pick up about 300-500 barrels a year and each barrel has six bands that hold the barrel together. After arrival we then wait about 3 months to have the wood dry out which causes the barrels to shrink a bit. At this point the barrel rings just slide off. This makes our job very easy when it comes time to break down the barrels. On a plus side, we no longer have to cut the bands off. Therefore, we only have full intact Rustic Whiskey barrel rings for sale again!

If you are ever looking for a large volume to order we can definitely cut you a break and offer you a deal. However, it has to be a very large order because shipping is the most expensive part about selling these. We say it’s free shipping but please understand that just means shipping is included. After all, Fedex, UPS, USPS and freight companies do not work for free. The weight of the barrel rings can add up very rapidly when you start buying in bulk. In short, you are mostly paying to get the rings to you. We are not looking to get rich of these. I just want to see them get up cycled into some thing else. Throwing them into the recycling bin seems like a big waste and missed opportunity and we don’t want to keep doing that.

If you have any questions or need more info please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Taking Care Of Your New Barrel Furniture

VISIT OUR ONLINE SHOP HERE

Whether you purchased from the Hungarian Workshop or from somewhere else here are some helpful insights for Taking Care Of Your New Barrel Furniture. Maintenance is a part of everyday life for most things and same goes for your furniture investments. Luckily, wine and whiskey barrels are made from French and American white oak which is very durable and robust. There is definitely a reason why wineries and distilleries use this material to store and age their products. White oak has a very high rot resistance and can last a life time. With a little bit of maintenance and conditioning your barrel furniture could become a family heirloom for decades to come.

First, it is important to know what kind of finish was applied to the wood. We use an outdoor sealer which penetrates the wood and protects from the indie out. This means, seasonal re-oiling is ideal to keep the oak looking new and hydrated. This form of protection is easier to work with because you can apply it when ever with ease. No sanding or stripping off old applications. Most people would agree that easier frequent maintenance is much better than a hard big refinish job.

“Taking Care Of Your New Barrel Furniture “

However, if you use a really good varnish, maybe marine grade than your furniture can stay looking great for years. yes a thick coat of varnish can be great too. The down fall off varnish is sometimes they can start to chip or peel. Also, they can easily be scratched. When is comes to shipping this can be a big problem… No matter how well you pack, some delivery companies will always find a way to nick or scuff up a corner or two. This is a big reason why we use an oil finish. Even with a big damage, you can always just sand the wood smooth and re-oil and then it is as good as new.

For more info you can check out our FAQ section and email us directly with any other inquiries.

San Diego’s best Wine and Whiskey Barrel Furniture

San Diego’s best Wine and Whiskey Barrel Furniture

We have been friends with many breweries and winery is souther California allowing us for a huge supply of Wine and Whiskey barrels. Our designs can be seen lots of local places. One of our biggest partner is Stone Brewing Company. We have our signature lounge chairs and many more at their local tasting rooms and restaurants. It has been over 10 years since I made them my first batch and barrel chairs. There might be a chance that you can sit in the first chairs I ever made.

We first started working in a small shared work space close to old town. Back then orders weren’t as many so it was doable. Plus the cost of operations wan minimal which help a ton. We all know running a business is souther California is very costly so starting out like this was great. After the chair design we moved up to making bar stools and tables. These were also very successful because now if you didn’t have a large space out back you could still own some beautifully handcrafted barrel furniture inside your home.

“San Diego’s best Wine and Whiskey Barrel Furniture”

Soon after we got our website up we started shipping all over the country. We even got a few magazine and news paper spots which also boosted local sales. We have since also shipped internationally. There are chairs and other items in Germany and Dubai just to name a couple places. Since the 2012 we have been working on new designs every year to keep customers coming back. This business is kind of tricky because you wont need to keep buying our furniture. Meaning our craftsmanship is top quality and the reclaimed oak is very robust. The life line of a chair with minimal upkeep can be decades. Hell, I still have my very first chair! Still solid but a bit gray and weathered.

Check out all our pieces and take a look at what’s on sale now!

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!!
