v3 Barrel Staves at Colossal November 05 2013

Our repurposed barrel staves have taken on a new life at one of our favorite shops, Colossal.

American oak barrels were first used to distill Kentucky Bourbon, then traveled to Chicago's Goose Island Brewery to age their coveted Bourbon County Stout. We've deconstructed the barrels and re-finished the wood, embracing the natural character in each piece and creating a unique design exclusive to the Colossal shop.

Each is hand painted by the designers. Hang as art or use the included stainless steel peg to create a functional piece. Custom mounting hardware allows horizontal or vertical orientation.

As always, we love to share our process photos:

Many thanks to Goose Island for these beauties!
