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.
