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!
