These handcrafted magazine racks are a perfect addition to add function and rustic decor to any home. Why have a mass produced import accessory in your home when you can have a piece of American history for your daily enjoyment. Our maker artisans have handcrafted these magazine racks from either a reclaimed bourbon barrel from Kentucky or a reclaimed wine barrel from Sonoma. The reclaimed bourbon barrels feature the char of the original barrel while the wine barrel features the deep red wine stains imparted upon the staves due to years of holding a fine cabernet.
Just a few months ago this wood was a barrel aging bourbon in the rick houses of Kentucky, or aging a Cabernet in the storage houses of Sonoma.
Once the barrels have completed their original purpose, we reclaim them from the distillery or winery and our artisans break down the barrels; cut and sand the base from the top of the barrel, and use the barrel staves as the holding fingers for the piece. Each handcrafted piece is coated with a food grade stain to ensure years of longevity and preservation of the piece.
