The Vineyard Collection features the exclusive use of Wine Barrels, Staves and Rings to make elegant pieces of furniture to beautify your home, venue or work place. The Vineyard Collection Cuddle Bench is made from Wine Barrel Staves and stained with a clear coat to bring out the natural beauty of the naturally occurring Wine staining. Each stave is hand picked by Chris to fit perfectly together and make an elegant yet functional piece of furniture. AND, just like the sister Bourbon Collection Cuddle Bench, it’s sturdy, “all stave” construction, makes these benches beautiful and extremely strong.

We proudly use reclaimed materials in all of our designs.
With the nature of our business, custom pieces handmade by one craftsman, coupled with the varying size of items, there are many factors at play. As for the shipping, a barrel weighs approximately 100 pounds before it is finished. While the basic weight won’t change much with the crafting of the barrel, because of the weight and size, we are required to ship our product by freight. This is a more expensive route to ship. And depending on where in the country the customer is located, the cost will vary. Also with the barrel, we have to package it as a freight item, so it is not just a matter of wrapping it in brown paper and shipping it, but it requires extra man power and handling factors. It also requires a pallet to ship it and to be properly packaged so it arrives in mint condition.
As for the smaller items, like the Cuddle Bench, while it is a much lighter piece so it will not cost nearly as much to ship and as is the case with most all our pieces that are made from a barrel, it is solid white oak. Oak is a heavier wood and therefore the weight is more than something made from poplar wood. Also with the Cuddle Bench, we can ship it through another carrier making it more cost effective for both business and consumer. Any additional customization of an item will require a 4-6 week lead time. As we approach major holidays, we will run closer to 6 weeks to process this type of piece. We are working as quickly as we can without skimping on quality to get you the most beautifully customized piece.
Barrels vary by the cooperage, size, color and wood grain characteristics may slightly vary. Polyurethane finished wood products are not intended for extended wet weather use. All weather outdoor finish is available. Items made with our outdoor finish are not intended to be stored outside for extended periods of time.
