I love barrels and living in central Kentucky the home of Bourbon there are
lots of barrels to work with. In the making of Kentucky Bourbon whiskey the
solid white oak 53 gallon barrels can only be used once. When the Bourbon is
emptied after 4 to 8 years in the barrels I am able to give them new life.
Being a craftsman the oak barrels are like gold to me. I make tables,
planters, rain barrels, coat hooks, and fountains with them. I use the metal
hoops to make pot hangers. My daughter paints country scenes on the barrel
tops. I even heat my home with the unusable barrel tops and staves. I sell
whole barrels, barrel staves, and barrel hoops to other craftsmen. I hope
you will take time to look at my work. If you leave feedback about my work
or site I will inter you in my monthly FREE giveaway, I am giving away a set
of 3 twig candle holders this month.
