|Kentucky Bourbon is America's only native spirit. By law Bourbon must be made in NEW white oak barrels. The many years spent aging in new barrels is why Kentucky Bourbon is the best whiskey in the world today. After the Bourbon is removed, the barrels are exported where they are REUSED to make Scotch, Irish Whisky, Rum, and Tequila. The best quality barrels come from Kentucky where they are made and used. Why settle for less when you can have the best. It is our pleasure to offer this valuable part of our Kentucky heritage to you.|

The oak selected for barrel staves must be straight and free of
knots and seasoned by drying naturally in the open air from eighteen
months to two years. The sun, wind, and rain will then help the wood
mature. Staves are then trimmed into a double taper and set on their
ends within an
iron hoop where coopers alternate narrow and wide
around the hoop to build strength and structure. Next, a strong stave
is chosen to be drilled for the bung hole. At this stage there are
33 staves per barrel. The staves are approximately 35 inches long,
1 inch thick and various widths. (All staves are
on the inside, except for the Wine Barrel staves listed below)

|Vintage Wine Barrel Staves|
Customers make beautiful chairs, benches, and tables with these vintage staves. Barrel staves are slightly bowed.
The staves are approximately 36 inches long, about 1 inch thick, and various widths. They will ship UPS Larger orders will ship freight. Wine barrel staves are not charred like the whiskey staves. They have a slight char only
gets its name from the fact that the log is first
quartered lengthwise, resulting in wedges with a right angle ending at
approximately the center of the original log. Each quarter is then cut
separately by tipping it up on its point and sawing boards successively
along the axis. That results in boards with the annual rings mostly
perpendicular to the faces. Quarter sawing yields boards with straight
striped grain lines, greater stability than flatsawn wood, and a
distinctive ray and fleck figure.
Quartersawn boards have two advantages. They are more resistant against warping with changes in moisture and shrinkage. The quartersawing method of cutting... renders quarter sawn oak structurally stronger, also finer in grain, and, as shown before, less liable to warp and check than when sawn in any other way.
The second advantage of quartersawn wood is the decorative pattern on the board. In quarter sawn wood the saw cuts across the growth rings, the visible grain is much straighter; it is this evenness of the grain that gives quarter sawn wood its greater stability.
In addition to the grain, quarter sawn oak will also often display a pattern of medullary rays, seen as subtle wavy ribbon-like patterns across the straight grain. Medullary rays grow in a radial fashion in the living tree, so while flat-sawing would cut across the rays, quarter-sawing puts them on the face of the board. This ray pattern has made quarter sawn wood especially desirable for furniture and decorative panelling.
Quarter sawn oak was a key feature of the decorative style of the American Arts and Crafts movement.

BARREL STAVE DESIGN TAKEN FROM AN OLD BOYS MAGAZINE
Figure 8 shows a comfortable looking, barrel-stave swing. Seven or eight barrel-staves are laced together with extra-stout linen cord, the size of clothes-line cord, or, better, with picture-cord wire, this being threaded through two holes in each end of each stave, as at E. A plank two inches thick, the length of a barrel-stave and the width of two staves, is used for the back, as at B. Holes an eighth of an inch larger than the rope to be used are bored through the plank, the rope drawn through across the lower edge, as at H. The two top staves are fastened to this plank with screws, as indicated.
For the front support, C,D, a stout hard-wood stick, at least one inch thick, two inches wide and three inches longer at each end than the stave, is used, with a hole for the suspending rope bored in each end. This is held in place by wiring it to the stave at each end, as at F. By making the suspending ropes B,G,C,D of the proper length, the staves curve naturally into a seat as shown. It is best to allow the ropes to go straight up to overhead beams or a porch ceiling, using the same hooks as are used for putting up a Glouchester hammock. This swing fits the body and swinging the feet out it works easily.
