The wine barrel furniture is made from real French Oak wine barrels sourced locally in California. After the wine has been produced, the barrels are recycled to create beautiful furniture. The creation of each piece of furniture using wine barrels is often a mix of enjoyable and challenging – as each barrel has an unique shape and personality.
Balazs was introduced to the idea of using wine barrels as a medium by Frank Busic, a general manager at Stone Brewing Co. in Escondido, CA. After making quite a few Redwood Adirondack chairs for the brewery, Frank showed him an old container full of barrel stave that their brewery had used. Frank told him to take a container home and see what he could come up with. After that day, his whole out look on carpentry has changed and a great window of opportunity opened up. Thanks Frank!
This beautiful wine barrel furniture collection is created using a combination of fine woodworking and stainless steel fasteners for strength. An all natural oil finish brings out the wood’s true patina without having to use any harsh lacquers. White oak is a hard, dense and heavy wood. It has exceptional resistance to wear and is almost water proof, hence the reason why it is perfect for making wine. These pieces are perfect for your family room, dining room, kitchen or wine cellar, and can also be used outdoors.
