So, I found and extra barrel on craigslist for $45 when I was looking for God knows what and decided I would try my hand at a little barrel fun...
I figured if I did OK with this one I would then convert the other two I have as well... So here are the results...

Up close. Makes great storage
I can now see why folks charge $800 plus to build these puppies... I purchased ~$100 in hardware, $25 for the one glass shelf ... so I am into this one for about $175.
I started this little effort Wednesday, worked through Thursday and put the finishing touches on it today. I put a ton of time (probably 20 hrs of so). I am going to put one more shelf in when I find another glass table that is around 25-26" diameter on Craigslist.
Stain in Golden Oak and all of the Hardware is galvanized like the bands on it. I built the latch because I did not find anything I liked... Each stave was drilled and screwed into place. About 200 holes just in the bands....
I learned a ton on this one so the next will be better in a few areas. I need to secure the staves on the inside prior to cutting then put to make it easier...
Anyone else done one of these?
