Wine-Barrel coffee table

Wine-Barrel coffee tableHiJust today I completed yet another wine-barrel project, this time a coffee table. Slowly but surely the old wooden furniture in the house is being replaced.We had an old Roxton Maple coffee table in the family room that was too large for the space, quite out of style and yet had a perfectly good maple top. I used that top for the new wine-barrel coffee table.The table top was reshaped to a perfect ellipse and refinished to appear as close as possible to white oak. Of course, the grain of maple is finer, but the idea was to match the color of white oak and also to recycle the old table top.The top is attached on the underside with 1-1/2 plywood, to which I fastened a drawer and four legs. The legs and the face and back of the drawer are fashioned from white oak barrel staves laminated together to form two curved surfaces. This was a tricky process. Lots of hand work involved.I did not incorporate a barrel hoop to surround the table top substructure, as the metal was reluctant to bend to an elliptical shape. This is because the wine barrel hoops are not flat bands, but are narrower on one edge than the other to accommodate the bulging side of the barrel shape.The table legs reveal the inner surface of the white wine barrel which is a deep amber color. I chose to leave the sides of the drawer box open so the lovely maple can be easily viewed.The lid is finished in clear Varathane Professional Matte… three coats. The legs, and lower structure of the table are similarly finished.The inside of the drawer is made from 1/2 baltic birch plywood.Blessings and Peace,
Bill

Furnished content.

Desk cabinets for my office areaThis project was all about organizing my office area around my 1950's oak school desk. It is incorporating my iMac , printer, 4K monitor for our security cameras and general stuff. I used genuine mahogany 3/4” plywood with a combination of white oak and Honduras mahogany for the facing. Simple but very functional
