I’m not sure how I came up with the idea, but it probably happened while I was in wine country, tasting wine and I had a moment of inspiration while under the influence. In any case, I wanted to make something a little different than the normal chunky wine barrel furniture – something a little more graceful and contemporary. I’d never seen curved barrel staves turned on their side before, so I decided to start there.

As part of an ongoing series of contemporary wood tables, I crafted this coffee table from reclaimed oak wine barrels from Napa & Sonoma Valley wineries.
I wanted to show off the gentle arc of the barrel cross section, along with the dark gradient of the toasted inner portion. The result is a three-dimensional effect. The ends are left staggered to reveal their origins as individual staves.

California furniture maker, Cliff Spencer, began using salvaged wine staves in his craftsman furniture designs a few years ago. The white oak staves, which are a component of the wine fermentation process, are placed in the steel vats used in the modern wine-making process (in lieu of oak barrels).
