Whiskey Barrel Coffee Table
Furnished content.

Whiskey Barrel Coffee TableI was commissioned to build this coffee table and the buyer sent the barrel (never agree to this). It was in terrible shape. I ended up replacing it with a much better one. It is all oak with the exception of the base. Even a decent barrel is a pain in the butt to get together solidly.I screwed the bands to the barrel when it was complete, ground off the heads, and welded them to the bands for a cleaner look. The top is all oak joined with #20 biscuits and dowels. I opted for parallel hinges so his wife could store stuff in it and they could use it to eat on when they don't feel like leaving the couch. All-in-all, it was a fun project that taught me some things. One was that I hope to never have to do again.
