Antique rustic wine barrel shaped cabinet holding 13 bottles.

Pre-assembled and ready to use. Lightweight at 20# The finish is a bees wax infused stain derived from the forest meadows where the monarch butterflies winter in a rich oaxacan mole umber hue, hand applied, then allowed to dry for two nights and then re-applied again.
Made in a factory in a remote village in Michoacán province. The village owns the forest, logging mill, and next door to the mill is our furniture factory and molding factory. The village where the white pine is selectively logged also harvests pine pitch and manages the forest for long term yields and sustainable growth. The area in the summer season is frequented by almost daily thunderstorms with a huge downpour of water and then it dries out and the evenings are warm shirt sleeve temperature. Avocados are extensively grown here.

I have just personally visited the factory, as I always do, to inspect the quality and am very happy with the result and expect arrival end February. Someone has to travel to the warm Mexican climate in the cold winter and it might as well be me. FYI, the factory had me delay the vist by an extra day, so I had to spend it on Isla Xtapa at a snorkeling and swimming cove. Such pain and tribulation I endure to get you, my customer, the best quality products.
