Wine Barrel Adirondack Chairs

“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.

Whiskey Barrel 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.

Wine Barrel Chair

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.

Whiskey Barrel Rocking Chair

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.

Whiskey Barrel Tables

“Choose your favorite disitllery’s barrels to be turned into Whiskey Barrel Tables. Our handcrafted end tables are ideal for any room or patio. SHOP NOW

Our second most popular design are the end tables. We have perfected the model over the years and we can barely keep them in stock. They are the prefect piece for any true whiskey enthusiast. In our online catalog you will see three side table variations. In this blog I will go over them and help you choose which one fits you best.

Whiskey Barrel Tables

First we have our standard Whiskey Barrel Tables. They are a fun simple design and a great buy. The four solid legs and cross braces make them super durable and strong. Ideal for commercial use as well. One of the legs will most often feature the bung hole showing off the materials history. The tops are available in two option. The charred black (the inside of the barrel) or the aged oak (the outside). When you choose the outside you will also have the option to choose from a few distilleries tops that we have available at that time.

Most common ones are Buffalo Trace, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey and Maker’s Mark. These Whiskey Barrel Tables also available in two height options. 18 inches and 24 inches. The 18 inch version is best go with our lounge chairs or other patio furniture. When you relax in our lounge chairs the lower table will work best. The 24 inch option is most suitable to be used in living rooms, games rooms and bars. Places where the seating might be a bit more higher up.

Whiskey Barrel Tables

Next we have our Whiskey Barrel Nightstand. Very same to the end table but here we have another barrel head mixed into the design. The bottom barrel head adds a cozy shelf which is ideal when you need to store additional item below. This table comes at 20 inches in height. A set of these go really well in a bedroom looking to add some rustic decor.

Our third and last table is our high end version. These take a lot longer to make and much more intricate. The legs reach all the way to the top and the sides are also made from whiskey barrel wood. Many small pieces have been milled perfectly to fit right which create the continues wooden edges. This piece is ideal only in indoor setting. If you want to show off a top quality pieces, this is the way to go.

Everyone will sure to love our handcrafted Whiskey Barrel Tables. You can check out our furniture at just about any Stone Brewing Company locations.

Whiskey Barrel Chairs And Table

“In the upcoming spring we are having a big sale on Whiskey Barrel Chairs And Table. Save 40% on your next handcrafted furniture made from reclaimed barrels.”

Today is the 22nd of February, and we have plenty of Whiskey Barrel Chairs And Table s getting finished up for our spring time sale. A big shipment of whiskey barrels arrived earlier this year and a mass production in under way. Barrels came from distilleries like Buffalo Trace, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Woodford Reserve, Jack Daniels and more. For our end tables we even sort through the hundreds of barrel tops and when available you can choose from your favorite distillery brand.

Our main focus this spring will be to ramp up production on our most popular items. These include our signature bourbon whiskey barrel Lounge Chairs and our one of kind Recurved Rockers. In the past 8 years we have made well over 900 barrel lounge chairs. Therefore, in 2020 we are easily projected to complete our 1000th. Our barrel chairs come in few different styles. You can choose to have them made from Wine or Whiskey barrels. They are available in rocking chair forms. As well as an interior version which includes high end Italian leather upholstery.

Bourbon Whiskey Barrel Lounge Chair

The Hungarian Workshop’s most popular and best selling item is the Bourbon Whiskey Barrel Lounge Chair. The oak is sanded just enough to clean to a smooth finish while maintaining its aged patina. They are available with two backrest options and will be a whiskey enthusiast best friend. They make great house warming and birthday gifts for just about anyone.

Bourbon Whiskey Barrel Recurved Rocker

Very similar to our standard lounge chairs but with one obvious big difference. The leg’s bottom brace is a Recurved barrel stave which allows for the upmost motion compared to others. Each rocker goes through a week long process of recurving the oak. What most don’t know is that barrels don’t actually have enough curvature for a rocking chair. Without our well designed system you are stuck with a motionless chair.

Our fine handcrafted Bourbon Whiskey Barrel furniture will turn into a family heirloom to enjoy for years to come.

Discounted Whiskey Barrel Chairs – 40% OFF!!!

“Discounted Whiskey Barrel Chairs are now available! In the spring of 2020 we are kicking off a big sale which will include our popular lounge chairs.” 40% OFF!!!


Bourbon Barrel Lounge Chair
(open top backrest style)


This year we are starting things off by pushing production of our whiskey barrel lounge chairs. We have plenty of material in stock and more on the way. Last month we completed our 938th barrel chair and our goal of a 1000th is just around the corner. The Discounted Whiskey Barrel Chairs Sale will include the standard lounge chairs which come with the two backrest options. Also our famous Recurved Rockers will be included. If we receive the shipment of wine barrels ahead of time, we should have some of those as well about a month in our big sale. Please email me at to get updates on our wine barrel furniture production.


Bourbon Barrel Lounge Chair
(closed top backrest style)



The shipment of barrels included barrels from Jim Beam, Woodford Reserve, Buffalo Trace and more. The quarter sawn white oak makes for the perfect reclaimed material for outdoor and indoor furniture. The wood is highly weather and rot resistant. (Hence why they are great for aging in.) After the we finish the chairs with Brazilian Rosewood Oil the wood also becomes UV and rain proof.

Bourbon Barrel Recurved Rockers


The Recurved Rockers are our finest pieces loved by many. The most important factor is that we recurve the bottom stave for maximum rocking motion. Barrel staves don’t actually have enough curve in them to be a proper rocking chair. (Some short wine barrels may come close but those are rare.) It takes about 10 days to get a pair of staves to be in the right shape. The process is slow and hard but the results are definitely worth it. Please note if we don’t have them in stock when you order your estimated turnaround time might be 2-3 weeks.

Bourbon Decor

“Shop for the perfect Bourbon Decor throughout our nine shop sections and find just what you are looking for. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE SHOP

The Furniture –

The most sought after items when people are looking for the right Bourbon Decor is often in our furniture line. The bourbon barrel lounge chairs are the best seller and for good reason. We offer them in a couple different varieties: two back rest style, rocking chair version, tufted leather upholstery or our newest which is the cushioned and leather wrapped lounge chair.

Bourbon DecorBourbon Barrel Lounge Chairs

The standard lounge chair comes in two backrest styles. We call them the “Open Top” and “Closed Top”. This refers to the top peak of the chair’s backrest. Both options sell very well, just about 50-50 so after six years we are still happy to make them both.

Bourbon DecorRecurved Bourbon Rockers

The Recurved Rocker is one of my proudest innovations. While many others simply place a regular old barrel stave for the rocking feet we actually re-bend the wood into a much more curved stave. This allows for a better rocking motion.

Interior Leather Line

The Interior Leather Line is a must for any true bourbon or wine fan. Very similar as our lounge chairs but these feature fully tufted cushioning for the back rest and the seat. We offer seven different color options and we might have some more in the near future. We also offer matching tufted ottomans as well.

Leather Wrapped Lounge Chair

Our most recent addition is the leather wrapped interior lounge chair. Production is underway and we are taking pre-orders as of right now. The wait time is bit longer but you get to save about 22%. These are the same exact lounge chairs but now with extra comfort and style. You can choose to have them be made from Bourbon Whiskey barrels or Wine Barrels. The seven leather color options are also available for these too. They are available in the Pre-Order section of our shop. By end of the month we should have them in our catalog with more photos.

Home Decor and Accessories

Next we have all the home goodies. In the Home Decor and Accessories page we offer many different Bourbon Decor and Wine Decor. From a few simple small items like tap handles and coasters all the way to clocks, skateboards and chess sets. All of these items are handmade from reclaimed barrels just like our furniture. Most of these are top sellers during the holiday season so if you are thinking about ordering please don’t hesitate. Being October now, we usually start seeing a heavy flow of orders and if you put it off till end of November you may not receive the item in time.

Leather Wrapped Bourbon Barrel ChairWith all the leather we order we try to be as efficient as possible.

Holiday Whiskey Gifts

Come check out our Online Store and see what Holiday Whiskey Gifts you can find. We have Home Decor and Accessories and also furniture. Must see!

Holiday Whiskey GiftsWell it is that time of the year again and as time flies it seem to get here quicker every year. And as always you do not want to wait till the last minute. Especially when it comes to hand made items. Even though we build a good size holiday inventory every fall, we still run out pretty fast by beginning of December. I am not trying to rush you but just as a friendly reminder to make sure no one is left disappointed. After all, no one wants rushed handcrafted work.

If you order before December 8th you are most likely good to go when purchasing Home Decor and Accessories. Excluding our Bourbon Barrel Chess Set. The chess set is very time consuming and a true labor of love. If ordered after we sell what we have in inventory, unfortunately it won’t arrive before christmas. If you have any time frame question please feel free to contact me.

Our bourbon barrel furniture line also has a good size inventory built. Anything that we ship as FedEx Ground will also be able to make the December 8th cut off. I wish I could guarantee time frames for our larger items as well. But since they ship as freight, the only way to get something on time is to pay extra for expedited freight with exact date delivery. If you don’t mid the cost we can accommodate for that.

Purchase handcrafted Holiday Whiskey Gifts for your favorite whiskey enthusiast!

Bourbon Barrel Side TableOur Holiday Whiskey Gifts include lots of options. One of the most popular is the Bourbon Barrel End Tables. They have four options which is always great and with a lower price point. These also can ship as FedEx Ground to make the holiday cut off and they also make up a large percent of our inventory. As far as Christmas gifts go, these are a great option I recommend.

Holiday Whiskey GiftsAnother very unique and popular item is our signature Bourbon Barrel Skateboard. It has been in few magazines and catalogs and we have shipped all over the world. It is fully functional or it can be a great addition in someones man cave or whiskey lounge.

Holiday Whiskey GiftsA third option I would recommend is pretty bold and it would make a huge impression on anyone. A full size 53 gallon Bourbon Whiskey Barrel. Luckily we can send these with FedEx as well. However be aware the shipping these is costly. They are big and weight about 100 lbs. FedEx unfortunately puts an oversize fee on them shooting the shipping price over what the barrel actually costs. But the good news is that we can ship these right away and it will land on your doorstep with in 3-5 business days.

if you have any other questions or just need a little more info on something please feel free to contact us. be sure to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media.

Happy Holidays from the Hungarian Workshop!
