    This is a new & cool little item I'll be offering. These are made from TN White Oak and have a nice medium char for drinking whiskey/spirits from. Though not much of a drinker myself I've always liked the looks and rustic appeal of whiskey barrels and have been wanting to give making some mini ones a try for a long time now. After starting to make the Bush Bottles I remembered the mini barrels I had been wanting to do and decided to give them a shot. :3:
    I'll also be offering the Bush Bottles in a charred oak version for whiskey/spirits but I'll do them in a different thread.

    I'll probably offer them in different sizes but for now they are 3" X 4" and will be offered at an introductory price of $35 + shipping $39 with free shipping for a limited time. This one holds approx. 7 oz.

    As always thanks for taking a look and for your support!
    Tim

    ETA:
    For now guys I'm going to offer these barrels in two sizes. Please keep in mind that since these are handmade the capacity may not be exact but it will be close.

    Shooter...............= 1.5 oz...
    $34 - Includes free shipping in the states - PayPal Only Please
    Tumbler..............= 7 oz ..... $39 - Includes free shipping in the states - PayPal Only Please

    These are intended for: "COLD BEVERAGES ONLY". NO COFFEE or other HOT liquids should be used in them.

    I forgot to put the capacity in the OP when I posted it so I edited it in. The one shown above at 3 inches diameter by 4 inches tall holds approx. 7 oz.

    Sorry about that guys,
    Tim

    For its purpose that's a pretty large capacity. 1.5 oz is a "standard" drink or shot of hard liquor. This can hold four of those with breathing room. That's not a criticism. Though I'm more of a rocks guy.

    For the volume, that might better be described as a wooden whiskey sipper, as you could just add ice to your “shot” or add ice and mix. A shooter is usually a 1 to 1.5 ounce container that is consumed all in one motion, as opposed to sipping for “enjoyment”.:1:

    The price is definitely right and I doubt you would see anyone else around a campfire with one and that goes for about anywhere you would tote it - TN charred white oak whiskey sipper I’m sure would get a lot of looks from the backwoods crowd and the city folks would be clueless.:dblthumb:.

    Thank you all so much for all the kind words and advice on sizing!!!

    I can count the times I've been inside a bar on one hand (and then it was to hear a band that was playing, not to drink) and I just never have been one to drink so I didn't have a clue on the sizing. :8: I just like the shape and looks of barrels and wanted to make some. If any of you have any other advice on these I would love to hear it and it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks my friends!

    I might be better off to do the price on these including shipping like I normally do on most things? I'm pretty sure $5 or less would cover shipping to anywhere in the US.

    I think it fits just fine within whiskey-on-the-rocks territory. It's within spec of an old fashioned glass, I'd call it a whiskey tumbler.

    I like your size choice and think it would be great for drinking wine from. May even add some flavor!

    Grog cup!!!!!! I'll have to watch for these as I'll definitely want one in the future. While not copper, it's definitely the right size!

    I think the size you have now is fine. It's versatile, just right for a single wine portion and for whiskey, lets you pour a double (or better) with room for ice or water or mixer. Even if someone just wants a sip, it's not like you have to pour a full fill; the phrase "pour me two fingers" (or however many) came from how much to fill up a glass with straight liquor...

    So I'd say keep this one as-is. But if you plan on offering additional sizes, I think one about half the size (3.5 oz) would appeal to the shooters out there.

    "Grog cup" I had to look that one up. :dblthumb: Very interesting! I've actually never tasted rum, I'll have to see if my local store has a small sample. :)

    Very cool piece. Design wise the only thin I have a question on is that top “ring” looks like it might cause dribbles when drinking? Maybe not. But I think it would look better to delete the top and bottom rings altogether and then it would look like barrel bands on it.
    Are you gonna do some other woods?

    I haven't had a chance to drink from it yet so I'm not sure but I don't think it will be an issue. The end rings are 3/16" away from the rim so I'm not sure how that would cause a dribble unless you were already drunk. :4: :dblthumb: All the whiskey barrels I've seen have 3 rings on each end. I've done other woods before for regular shot glasses but I doubt I'll do any barrels in other woods.

    If a person had rather have two rings on each end or no rings at all that would be fine with me. Just let me know when you PM me to get on the wait list for one and I'd be happy to oblige.

    Very neat, beautiful work as usual Tim.

    IMO, you DO want dark rum.

    I would be interested in an oak ‘shot glass’ some day. No hurry, Christmas got my $. ;) But a small ‘shooter’ would be a fun thing to pack along.

    Thank you brother! I'd be glad to make you a shot glass out of any wood you'd like but I probably won't be doing the barrels in woods other than oak. I guess it's just an OCD thing :3: but a barrel out of another wood just wouldn't seem right.

    I didn't research anything other than whiskey barrels but I stand corrected, it appears that some wine barrels do in fact have only two bands. To be honest spirit containers is something I've never thought much about (other than thinking they look really cool) until here recently. I think I read that some wine barrels are made from other woods. Did you have a particular species in mind that you wanted one made from? If a person was planning to drink whiskey from it I'm not sure how other woods would affect the taste?

    I've had the wood in the kiln drying for a couple of weeks so hopefully not too much longer. Having narcolepsy I simply can't give a date. I'd rather be known as slow but 100% honest than a person that doesn't keep his word.

    To be sure everyone understands this is a wait list, not an order list. I don't take prepayments... I just have to make things as I'm able.

    At some point, as bad as I hate it I'm going to have to close the wait list and take a hiatus for carpal tunnel surgery on both hands, :( so please keep that in mind guys.
