I thought you'd like to see my latest 'barrel project'. I made one for a friend for a Christmas present and have since made one other for someone who saw the original at a party. The revolving bottle and stem glass holders are made from Yew. Two shelves in the drop-down door give more storage for 'shot' glasses etc.
The whole was oiled and waxed and sits on 4 casters for mobility. It takes time as an inner 'former' has to be made to retain the barrel shape in the 'door'. I think you'll agree though that it's well worth the effort
All credit to you, for your painstaking skill and perseverance. What a dedicated and meticulous project that looks unique, and a real conversation piece. Reminds me of the barrel chair that an upholstery company made a few years ago.
