Please enjoy my custom creations. Each piece is unique, hand crafted, and made entirely of retired wine barrels from locations around the world. I strive to use every part of the barrel, employing the staves, chimes, hoops, rivets while leaving the character such as branding and bungholes intact.
The wine barrels, made from durable, seasoned’ French and American Oak have been naturally hued from the marvelous wines which they once contained. In many cases they are even further enhanced by charring or toasting, techniques used to impart the special flavors winemakers strive for in creating a distinctive vintage.
I finish my creations with natural Tung oil for protection and to bring out the beauty of the piece while leaving all the beautifully rustic charm of the barrel intact.
Please enjoy
