Save-A-Stave: Discerning Wine Barrel Art 

Wine enthusiasts love the ubiqutous creations made from all parts of the Wine Barrel and Bottles used to store them, like lazy suzans, candelabras and more.  Save-A-Stave (SAS) makes those, but really strives to create more unique artwork, in the form of signature pieces, that you won't find other stave artists making.  For example, the Model 11, Model 421 and Put-A-Cork-In-It are made exclusively by SAS. 

Did you know...the staves are the long wooden pieces that make up the barrel, with metal hoops holding them in place, no screws just a tight fit for all the boards.  This is part of what makes each piece of Save-A-Stave unique, the years of wine aging in the barrels leaves the inside stained with fruit. Additionally the grain patterns, seasoned wood and natural color changes on the outside create for a beautiful natural finish, that SAS only highlights with a protective varnish.  We use only wine barrels made from oak sourced from local Washington State wineries.  

 

Thanks for taking a look! Save-A-Stave strives to make great quality, unique pieces of stave art you won't find anywhere else.
