Rustic Used Whiskey Barrels- Open Head
Do you love whiskey? And everything made from whiskey barrels? Ever think of actually owning a whiskey barrel? Well, this is your chance. We have used whiskey barrels just waiting for a good home. Barrels have many uses such as decorations, planters, tables and more. The head has been removed so the barrel can have even more uses. Note: Whiskey barrels are charred inside, so be prepared as charred pieces may come off or the charred dust may get on things.
RECYCLED: These rustic whiskey barrels still have the barrel rack marks and stains proudly showing their years of service. All this adds a special touch for those who are sensitive to ecology and recycling.
HAND CRAFTED: While we don't make the barrel, it takes time to prepare your barrel per the selected options. Please allow us up to 1 week after payment to prepare your barrel for shipping or pickup.
OPTIONS: For a more refined look, we can sand and finish the barrel, even so, there will still be some remaining marks and stains. If you desire this, add sanding and medium walnut oil to finish the barrel. If the barrel will be used as a planter or water fountain, expect some leakage until the wood swells up again. Most of these barrels will reseal over time. Also purchase a bung to close the bung hole. For water tightness, use a silicon bung. Bungs can be purchased separately.
- Sand and Oil Dark Walnut
CUSTOMIZE: Call or email us if you want any cuts or to personalize the barrel. Cuts and personalization are extra.
Please note, each whiskey barrel will be unique in coloring, condition and size due to variations in production of whiskey barrels and whiskey. No two are alike. Even when we stain/oil them, no two whiskey barrels turn out identical. The barrel marks and whiskey stains make these barrels special. Whenever we work on these barrels, we can’t help thinking that every barrel has a story to tell!
- Wood - white oak
- Hoops (usually rusty as they are not galvanized)
Approximate Dimensions Range: 26"W x 26"L x 35H"
Tip: to keep barrels tight, put a small amount of water in the barrel to keep the staves (wood) expanded. This will help keep the barrel tight. Email or call for other ways to maintain the barrel.
