I have been a carpenter for 35 years and love working with wood. 10 years ago, my wife and I moved from Alberta to build our dream home in the Okanagan Valley wine region. In 2019 someone gave me a used wine barrel and I got an idea to repurpose it. I made items as gifts for friends at Christmas and Wine Barrel Art began.
I create handcrafted, unique and useful accessories made from retired Oak wine barrels & incorporate the galvanized steel rings and the staves of the barrels into the pieces. I am a recycler at heart and believe in minimizing waste and reducing our carbon footprint.
My creations vary from Charcuterie Platters with Blackboards, Wine Caddies, Votive Candle Holders, Wall Clocks and Specialized Wine Racks. Custom orders welcome.
These “made in the Okanagan” items, make great gifts for a wine lover and look wonderful in any room or bar.
