Barrel cradle sections are barrels that have been halved lengthways. They can be used in a number of ways but are particularly useful in pubs and bars where they can be stood against a wall to provide an additional place to stand a few glasses. Cradles can also be used to create an unusual bar front.
As well as being useful for standing against a wall they can be hung downwards on a wall or cross ways for decor. When used as container tubs in specialist shops etc. they can help to create the feel of authenticity.
Before halving the barrels are specially prepared so that they remain intact at the end of the process. Preparation work is done on the barrel ends and additional fixings are used throughout the barrel.
Our cradles are available in a range of heights, widths and in several finishes of Rustic, Rustic with Black Hoops and Dark Oak.
Rustic cradles are left in the original condition of the barrel with a weathered surface and lightly rusted hoop iron.
Rustic with Black Hoops
This finish is similar to the rustic finish except the hoop iron has been painted black.
To obtain this finish the cradle a dark oak wood stain is applied.
All capacities and dimensions are approximate.
