Wine Barrel Lazy Susan

I've always loved wine barrel lazy susans but never the price tag associated to them.  Some can cost up to 200 bucks!  We purchased a couple of wine barrels from Craig's List last summer for $60 a pop and have used them for a few DIYs around the house.  

We removed the bottom of one wine barrel and originally used it as a table topper on the front porch.  As you can see it's received quite a beating over the past year.  Wine stains (no judgement please), spilled candle wax, sun exposure… it was pretty much falling apart and quickly turned to "trash".  It desperately needed to be brought back to life.

After cleaning the surfaces I applied some wood glue into the seams of each of the wooden planks one at a time and clamped them together until they were dry.

Then a little sanding and a couple coats of clear minwax.

I picked up this turntable at Home Depot for a whopping $4.50 and used MDF to mount the hardware for the lazy susan base (Andy did all the cutting of course).  

Then we attached the hardware to the wine barrel board making sure to use screws that would not break through the front side.

I can't wait to use this for entertaining!

  1. It's awesome! Now I wish I didn't gift to my mother-in-law an old wine barrel I found at a flea market. Gotta find another one and do this. Love it! Love the picture with the wine and goodies. It's perfect. Popped over from the "Get Your DIY On" post on Just A Girl and Her Blog. May stay and look a while. :)

  2. I've always wanted to work with old wine barrels, and I love how this lazy susan turned out! I'm going to be featuring your tutorial on my blog tomorrow morning. Thank you for sharing! ~Lisa

  3. Totally love this. There is a lazy Susan project somewhere in my future. Thanks for the how to.

    1. Thanks! You should totally make one! I use mine ALL the time :)
