The wine and whiskey barrel chairs are a great hit! I cant believe how well they are selling and I cant wait to make more. Making these chairs has been a lot fun but sometimes they can also be a little tricky. I feel like every time I make one, I learn something new. There is so much to take in consideration, like not one barrel is same as the other, each stave can be different in shape, size and color. That is why before assembly I really have to go through and pick out the right pieces for the right spot. Buying the barrels for some can be difficult at times too, but luckily here in beautiful San Diego we have plenty of wineries near by to keep us craftsman busy. To my surprise most local lumber yards keep a few in their inventory at all time, saving me quit a bit of time and money on traveling. The barrels I picked out for these chairs were used for red wine which explains the woods amazing deep purple and burgundy patina.
I already have a few new orders and I am planing on doing an instructional video on how I build these very comfortable and durable chairs.
