This was obviously made by an "artist" of the highest caliber. I raise a toast to your superior craftsmanship and inginuity sir. Now if I can only convince the wife it goes with the crappy, boring living room furniture she picked out, it will be mine. :bigeyes:

I've got an awesome dining room table/poker table/bumper pool table that includes four chairs. All of it made out of old whiskey barrels.

Looks like the entire east coast supply of Pappy 15. :rolleyes:

Very nice, but could you please remove the bourbon from the table and take the picture again. It is taking the focus off the fine bourbon barrel furniture which is the subject of this thread. And yes I'm jealous as I have neither the furniture or the Pappy's.:grin:

My Pappy supply comes from all over the place. I've got non-bourbon drinkers scouring all corners of the country.

I'm pretty sure Sears sold living room sets like the one theDon posted back in the 70s. When I first got my table, I was looking at who could have possibly made it. I came across numerous tables and living room sets that were similar. IIRC, Sears sold one with the colored leather.

After finding a Patent # on the bottom of my game table, I googled that. I found out that mine was made by a small manufacturer in Maine in the early 1970s.

I bought it via CraigsList for $300 from a girl in Cambridge, MD who just didn't have room for it anymore. Supposedly, it belonged to a Narcotics detective who lived on Staten Island, and she ended up with it when the detective moved away. She then brought it to Cambridge.........

Ran across a set of this stuff on eBay, it's been on there forever. I believe it's a double barrel couch and side table and there might even be a small table and chairs similar to SMOWK's but without the poker/bumper table top.
