Creating for 5 Years

I first took up woodworking to replace the
furniture my wife and I lost in a fire while living overseas. What started as a
hobby of necessity quickly turned into my passion. Barrel-Art specializes in
creating functional, handmade works of art from reclaimed wine barrels. One of
my earlier pieces was a bar made from a French oak wine barrel, its popularity
inspired the idea for Barrel-Art. Barrel-Art specializes in creating
functional, handmade works of art from reclaimed wine barrels. We hand-craft
flights, pens, furniture, and metal art designs. We pride ourselves in
delivering beautifully finished products from upcycled materials. Always
preserving the natural red wine stained underside of the staves and in some of
our pieces we feature the galvanized steel hoops of the barrel. By using every
part of the wine barrel in our pieces we minimize our carbon footprint one
barrel at a time.
