barrels

Wine Wood Creations was born from my desire to continue a family tradition and continue a childhood passion of creating functional items using wood. I am a 4th generation woodworker and have some of my great-grandfather’s tools and woodworking items. Living in Oregon wine country I found that once a wine barrel has been used for 5-7 years to make some of the world’s finest wine, the barrels are then disposed of and are often turned into planters. I wanted to use this 100 year old French Oak to create quality furniture that would not only look good on decks, but in tasting rooms, or an elegant living room. I build each piece with care and craftsmanship and it will last for many years. The finishing process takes 12 steps in order to retain the character of the wood and give it durability. I hope you enjoy using your hand crafted piece as much as I enjoyed building it.

  1. What is the finishing process that you use? I work with reclaimed barn lumber and am constantly trying to find a process that really captures the character of the wood. Unless it’s a family secret haha
