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.
Recycled Barrel Furniture San Diego
We are currently running a huge spring sale to ramp up production and to hit our 1000th barrel chair in the next few weeks. With all the other designs which are not numbered I kept a steady Instagram journal. With that I can always look back and see mostly all my previous work. If you interested please feel free to check us out and see what’s our latest creation.

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.

“The Wine Barrel Rocking Chair with Leather Upholstery is a must have for any Wine Enthusiast! Enjoy your favorite bottle in style by rocking back and forth in a comfy and elegant chair.”
Wine Barrel Rocking Chair with Leather Upholstery –
The Hungarian Workshop has been San Diego’s number one place to order fine quality Wine barrel furniture. In past four years we have teamed up with Stone Brewing Company and haven’t slowed down since. Another big client of ours has been couple of the local Whole Foods Markets and few smaller local brewery’s tasting rooms.
In past year I have been doing a lot of product and development and we have entered a whole new demographic of strictly interior design. The concept of adding fine leather to our current pieces become evident after our products were needed in more and more interior location. By end of the summer we will have the whole new leather line available online and most likely in a couple retail store.
The Chair –
We handcraft each chair from a single wine barrel that is the perfect shape and size for a rocker. Many people often think you can use just about any barrel, but in fact it is important to use a short and round one. Likely a Cabernet barrel will fit that description. They have a much bigger curve radius and wider staves that work very well. All major joints have support brackets underneath for additional reinforcement which we make our self from the Wine Barrel’s rings. All the other hardware is stainless steel for great quality and a high end look. For the finish we use Brazilian Rosewood which protects the oak while bringing out the beautiful grain pattern and patina.
The backrest and seat feature the fine Italian leather upholstered by hand in a tufted style.
Italian Full-Grain Leather
FULL-GRAIN has been a favorite for a long time that has a very natural look and feel with a generous color palette. Unlike top-grain leather, the surface is left naked. It is aniline-drum dyed and softer to the touch. For anyone who is a true leather purists and those who appreciate the beautiful patina that is enhanced with age.
These are the NEW colors available later this month!
We are currently working on a few new products which will have these fine leather colors available. Please sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media to see what new items and current project we are working on.
