3. Cooler. An oak barrel is used to give a woody flavor to wine. After it is no longer useful for that purpose, it makes a great beverage cooler. This half barrel is conveniently raised on a stand and has a spigot for draining water.
5. Lazy susan. The barrel head is the perfect size for a serving platter or Lazy Susan. The metal hoop and wine stamp remind you of its origin.
6. Side table. The clean lines of this side table make it suitable for many interior styles. The dark color is the result of wine penetrating the wood of the barrel. Three sets of strips cut from the metal hoops overlap to create artistic bracing for this unique piece.
