When it comes to any rocking chair the most important element is their range of motion. Without proper movement you have a chair that just tilts a bit each way. This was an on going issue I know had to fix and overcome. A very important key fact when it comes to wine barrels is that they don’t actually have a proper curvature for a smooth rocking chair. And whiskey barrels, forget about it. The staves are virtually flat.
The best wine barrels I found to work best before my innovation were engraved as Bear Boat. They seemed to use shorter and more round barrels for their wine which seem to work ok. But that’s it. The rest are just tall with a hefty curve in the middle. More like a kink in the wood. This would mean you could only be on either side. Not so much of a rocker at all.
As the orders started coming in for rocking chairs and people asking about the whiskey version I had enough. With a few weeks of due diligence I created my own steamer system that recurved the barrel staves into the proper shape. It may be an extensive process that’s long and difficult but the results speak for them self. I can happily say that the Hungarian Workshop’s rockers are The Best Wine Barrel Rocking Chairs. The curvature of the bottom staves are perfectly re-shaped to allow for a smooth rocking motion. Next time you are in the market for The Best Wine Barrel Rocking Chairs please keep us in mind. Our Recurved Rockers are available in Wine and Whiskey barrel.
We make all our furniture from reclaimed Wine and Bourbon Whiskey barrels. Every barrel is made from quarter sawn white oak. When the wood is milled in such way, beautiful tiger stripe like grain patterns can show through. Once its clean sanded, buffed smooth then oiled the wood becomes absolutely gorgeous. The first time I notice the difference I thought all French, American & Hungarian oak needs to be milled this way.
The design aspect that categorizes our furniture in a more modern style would be the over all quality and features of our material. Also the lines and curves of the barrels staves give all our pieces a sleek newer look. Not all rustic items need to have rough edges and nails sticking out from them. Over the past 8 years the Hungarian Workshop has perfect our lounges chairs and have made close to a thousand of them. They are the number one seller and we have shipped all over the US and even few places around the world.
One of my main goal was to keep our products notably in higher standards than other competitors. In addition, with the constant attention to detail and new innovations we turned into southern California most well known barrel artisans. We have partnered up with Stone Brewing company back in 2012 and have been doing steady business with them. They are opening new locations all the time which always need a Modern Rustic Interior Design.
Most importantly, if you work for a design agency and thinking about using our furniture for a client please email us for our designer discounts. firstname.lastname@example.org
“We upcycle hundreds of barrels every years to make our signature furniture. San Diego Beer and Wine Barrels are a great source for us in sunny California.”
In the Hungarian Workshop we get our barrels from where ever we can. However. here in beautiful sunny San Diego luckily we have plenty of wineries, breweries and even distilleries. In the past 8 years we have made a lot of excellent connection with some big and well known companies to keep us busy and stocked up. Our best and most frequent customer is Stone Brewing Company. They have been with us since the start and they ordered well over 200+ pieces.
Stone has locations all over San Diego, the east coast and even China. Many of these locations also carry our very popular furniture line. For them the most common order is our signature lounge chairs which we are now getting close to making our 1000th. This spring we are having a huge sale with saving of 40%. Please check out our Current Sales & Set Deals page and save big today!
Most wineries are a bit north in Temecula and their wine barrels are great. The deep red and burgundy colors left from the wine make all furniture pieces just amazing. Each pieces is sealed with Brazilian Rosewood oil that protects from all weather elements. Keep away harmful UV rays from the sun and seal the oak from moisture. With proper placement and care each piece of furniture can be enjoyed for years to come. I in fact still have barrel chair #1 on my patio holding up strong.

When you really want to move into the fine furniture category we have our interior line which features Italian Leather upholstery. From there we have the Tennessee Whiskey barrel furniture. Same as the bourbon but a very famous company brands their own barrels which are shown on few staves. Because of this very noticeable difference and because technically Tennessee Whiskey isn’t bourbon, we had to separate. Next is our Whiskey Barrel Edison Lights. A fun way to brighten your room. All lights are dimmable! Last comes the Recycle Bin. We usually have full size barrel, staves, barrel heads, rings and cut off up for grabs. Anyone looking to do some projects will love browsing in there.
We make the finest quality barrel furniture here in Sunny San Diego. We source our material from the local vineyards, brewers and distillers. Our online shop offers a wide variety of handcrafted furniture as well as home decor. We have been in business since 2012 and we are about to make our 1000th barrels chair. Since the beginning I have been numbering our chairs to have the knowledge of just how many we have made. I have been making Adirondack style chairs in past and I never kept tabs on how many I have produced. Once I made my first barrel chair I know I wanted to change that.
I made my first whiskey barrel chair in June of 2012. Just by luck I had a photographer from the San Diego Union Tribunedo a piece on the shared workshop I was working out from at the time. We captured pictures of the first ever Hungarian Workshop barrel chair getting made. I still have that chair right out side my patio now. Rain or shine it still holding up strong. Maybe a bit weathered but that’s what adds character.

“Starting this Spring we are having a huge 40% OFF sale on our most popular barrel furniture. It includes our signature Wine & Whiskey Barrel Adirondack Chairs!”
Starting this Spring we are having a huge 40% OFF sale on our popular wine & whiskey barrel Adirondack style lounge chairs. We received another large shipment of barrels and more are on the way. I have ramped up production and are passing the savings on to you. The Hungarian Workshop has been making wine and whiskey barrel furniture for 8 years. Therefore this summer we are projected to make our 1000th chair.
The barrel lounge chairs can come in a few different styles. First you can choose to have them made from wine or whose barrels. Then you can pick the backrest style. The Closed Top version is the narrower top where the staves are touching together where your head is. The Open Top is the wider of the the two where the staves are spread open. For the whiskey version this one os more popular and for wine the other.
Then you have the option to have it made as a rocking chair. This is our most proudest creation. We actually steam bend the wood to have the best rocker on the market. Actual barrel stave do not have enough curvature for proper rocking motion so we take the time to do it right. We call them the Recurved Wine and Whiskey Barrel Rockers.
If you are an indoors kind of person we have got you covered. With leather that is. We also offer our chair with Italian leather upholstery. This are usually not on sale because of the high priced leather and upholsters we use. There is a lot of specific details that go into making just one of these chair so mass production isn’t in the works. These are more of an artisan pieces made for people seeking one of a kind and unique design.

Our Wine and Whiskey barrel designs has a wide range selection from chairs, tables, bar stools, end tables etc. Some designs are also available in an interior leather upholstered version. We have been in business here in souther California for just about 8 years and we have been selling our furniture world wide. Our biggest partner is Stone Brewing Company. We have been creating their out door garden and patio lounge chairs since the beginning. We teamed up back in 2012 and since then we have created hundreds of pieces for all their locations. Last month we finished our 938th barrel lounge chair and at Stone Escondido they still have chair #2 floating around the garden.
Our Bourbon Whiskey Barrel Lounge Chairs are handcrafted from reclaimed Kentucky bourbon barrels and rarely we also find some Tennessee Whiskey (J.D.) barrels in the shipments as well. This year in 2020 we are aiming to finish our 1000th barrel chair. To help reach our goal we are also having a huge spring sale with discounts up to 40% OFF. Whether you live in San Diego or on the east coast we offer shipping just about anywhere. Feel free to contact us about international’s shipping.
Most of our designs are available in both Wine and Whiskey barrel material. Wine is French Oak which is lighter in color and has a red, burgundy or purplish stain on the inside. Whiskey barrels are made from American White Oak that is either dark brown, greenish or almost black. The outside can be best described as a little bit like a camouflage patina. The inside of the barrels are charred black.
Occasionally we receive some branded JD Tennessee Whiskey barrels from our suppliers. This year we got quite a few so we were able to create the Tennessee Whiskey Barrel furniture line and also offer a few as full barrels for home decor. The barrels are roughly 22″x22″x34″ and weight about 90-100lbs. Please note that colors and over all appearance varies from barrel to barrel. Not one is exactly alike.
Once we receive our Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Barrels we build a moderate inventory to help decrease turn around time. When we have all that we can store, we offer up the extra barrels. This way we don’t sit on too many and because they can dry out we don’t have to worry about their shelf life. (in a sense) What most people may not know is that barrels are only completely solid while they are hydrated. We live in southern California by the beach so humidity level are relative high. Which slows down this process drastically. If you are residing in places like Nevada or Arizona where dry heat is common, the barrels will need to be hosed down with water often to keep water tight.
Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Barrels that we get are fairly old with a lot of characteristic. Perfect for home decor and man caves. Most of the time they are used for out door patio tables. If you have a project in mind with your favorite whiskey brand these barrels are the way to go! The wood is American white oak which was quarter sawn that shows off amazing grain patterers and highly rot resistant. The staves are 1″ thick so you won’t have to worry about weakness.
When is comes time to shipping barrels unfortunately there is no way around high shipping costs. Essentially barrels are big heavy empty containers that carriers love to place extra charges on. When you order 1-2 we have to ship as FedEx Ground. It will get to you in 3-5 days, (very fast) however they place an $80 oversize on the shipment simply because of its size. basically almost doubling the shipping cost. A single barrel from say San Diego to New York will cost you just in shipping, about $180. It will come straight to your door in 5 days but you will have to pay the price. Now when you order 4 or more we can send as freight and start cutting the price per barrel down drastically. Trucking routes vary so if you are looking to buy in bulk please give us a call or email us so we can get you good rate.
For more information please dint hesitate to contact us. You can also email me directly at email@example.com

Looking for some beautifully handcrafted wine and whiskey barrel furniture or decor? The Hungarian Workshop of southern California has created a furniture line that has been corner stone of all barrel designs. Each piece is made with great quality and attention to detail. All wooden barrel staves are hand selected for each specific project. We have a large indoor warehouse where we keep all material and let the oak rest properly. No outdoor yards where the oak would over whether and turn nothing but gray.
When choosing between wine or whiskey it’s mainly up to you. Simple preference really. If you are a big wine enthusiast you will love the light colored oak with the reds and burgundy stains left behind from the wine. The signature curves from wine barrels create some of the most comfortable lounge chairs available. If you want to set up your wine room with a one of kind feature we suggest you take peek at our Interior Leather line as well. A must see if you want to achieve that true high end look.
The whiskey barrel wood a bit different from wine. Some people describe it as rugged and manly, but don’t let that sway your mind. If you are like me who loves reclaimed wood with as much characteristics as possible, this is definitely the route to go with. The American white oak is charred on the inside and the outside usually will have more darker features. Deep forest greens, rusty reds and golden oak with dark grains patterns. With the right amount of prep work, the quarter sawn oak shows off incredible tiger stripe like grain pattering.

The Hungarian Workshop makes high end barrel furniture here in southern California. We are the #1 San Diego Bourbon Barrel Furniture creators. SHOP NOW
If you have visited sunny San Diego or lucky enough to live here you probably have enjoyed the many craft breweries available to us. One of the biggest and most popular in the county is Stone Brewing Company. We have been working with them for over 6 years and now all their locations carry some of our product lines. It was through them how we received our first barrel ever and created a barrel lounge chair. In their Escondido location, in the garden you can even find barrel chair #2. ( I have #1, ha)
Each year the Hungarian Workshop crafts about 100 wine or bourbon whiskey barrel lounge chairs. It is our most popular item and we have shipped all over the US and even some parts of Europe. The chairs also can be made into our signature Recurved Rockers. The best out on the market. Most people may not know that the barrels staves alone don’t provide enough motion to be a proper rocking chair. We actually recurve the wood into a heftier arch that lets the user rock and back forth much more. If you are looking for a true barrel rocking chair, look out for that. I can not stress this enough. If you find your self comparing, just take a look at the bottom staves between our rockers and others.
Another great option is the Interior Leather line. We have turned everyones favorite barrel lounge chairs into a classy and high end version. The Italian full grain leather hides add a one kind look that is a must have for wine lovers and true whisky advocates. The tufted upholstery is soft and comfortable that will be the focus point in any room. The leather is available in 7 different colors. And don’t forget, these also can be turned into Recurved Rockers.
