Picture of Wine barrel into a wine rack
I bought a 25 gallon wine barrel at a yard sale for 10$.  I turned it into a lighted wine rack.

Step 1: The barrel

Picture of the barrel
Shown here is the barrel as I originally bought it.  It was actually used to make wine by its previous owner.  It did hold water but there were some soft spots on the bottom which lead me to believe there was rotting inside.  I first labeled all of the slats and hoops.

So my lifelong hunt for a wine barrel begins today. I need this! Thanks for sharing.

The end result looks beautiful! Awesome job!

What a great peice! Looks like a lot of work but worth it in the end.
