Our signature half wine barrels make ideal pots for large Barrel Planters, Ponds or Chiller Bins as eskies. Our authentic Half Barrels come with stainless steel screws in the bands to maintain integrity. Bargain Barrel chooses to cut up wine barrels that are tired or may have bent lids. As a Barrel Planter, Pond or Chiller Bin these bent lids are underneath. The value represents half the purchase price of a full barrel with no extra charges for materials or labour. It is important that our valued customers inform us of the desired outcome of their Half Barrel, so we can assist with meeting their expectations.
This is a made to order item and takes approximately 1-2 weeks to produce.

With age and weathering the oak will shrink, which will allow the bands to become lose and in some cases fall off. Bargain Barrel recommends stainless steel screws in the bands, a light sand to remove unwanted foreign markings, followed by a chemical gurney. Once the barrel is completely dry apply 2 coats of decking oil. This will ensure additional years for your barrel planter.
