    Nice! I guess judging from the grain that's southern yellow pine?

    Ha! Yep I hear you. I procrastinated and needed these stands done "right now". So good enough was good enough.

    A local whisky distillery sells these after one use. My Homebrew store gets them and passes the deals onto their customers. $100 for the 10 gallon ones and $70 for the 5 gallon ones. It's a great deal these are $300 new.

    They just bottled a batch when i drove these home you could almost get drunk off the smell coming off them. What a fantastic smell!!

    No these will go in a plastic container for the 1-2 months the wine is barrel aging. Once I bottle the wine, I'll use these stands to display the barrels probably on my bar top or the floor next to it.

    Here's the containers and the barrels swelling to seal.

    Simple, 30 minute project

    I make wine. I have 30 gallons of wine ready to put in barrels. I needed barrel stands for my barrels. So I got the best "1/4 sawn" pine I could find at Home Depot and made 2 stands out of it. Took all of 30 minutes for both. I used a wire to get the proper radius for the barrel, which turned out not to work very well, then transferred that to a paper template. Once done I went back and forth a few times to correct my radius, then duplicated it 3 more times. The cross braces are friction fit. I got the general angle of the barrel by dropped my sander table about 20 degrees and sanding the bevel. It went quick since I used a new belt and it was pine. Stands are solid and will hold up for a long time.

    You might remember I was thinking of making a wooden "box" for the wine. I got the below 10 gallon barrel for $100 (x2) instead.

Working...
