Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Soupy Product picked up is not exactly as shown in picture
I ordered this product online and picked it up at the store today. The one I picked up did not look at all like the one in the picture, although it is also a 25-in oak whiskey barrel planter. All the rings are very rusty, and the wood outside looks dirty and stained with mildew, as if it is very old. The black tar sealer painted on the inside is inadequate.
I recommend this to those who are willing to put in elbow grease to clean it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by whiskydrinker THEY ARE WHISKEY BARRELS!!!
These are exactly what they say they are! People, The slats shrink if not kept moist, as does all wood. Ive had 3 of these for over 2 years now and because ive kept them full with moist soil and plants they look great. Rings still in place and slats are tight. My dwarf avacado tree is doing great in one of these barrels.

I purchased these oak barrel planters as strawberry and herb planters for our garden .... they are sturdy, smell great, and have held up. I did paint them to match the raised garden troughs.
Overall, great addition, look great when painted, and the plants seem to be thriving.
When comparing cost to the hardware store in town, they were a little more expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by moacmom Refinished Whiskey Barrel
I bought two of these to use for either planters or end tables. I really like the way the bottom was stamped with the whiskey makers brand. Over time if left unfinished the barrel will come loose from the bands. I used extra screws and refinished the wood and metal with products from Home Depot. I now have barrels that are furniture quality and will last for years. I love how versatile they they are and with a little elbow grease they look really great. I will buy more of these soon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ladywilk Does all I expected!
Does all I expected and looks nice on the patio. I expect many years of "kitchen door" gardens. This year grew salad greens and herbs.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Patti Not as good as the picture indicates
I ordered on line to pick up at the store. So I paid for it in advance. They had two left. The one I got the metal rims were rusted and the oak slats have gaps. It hardly resembled what was in the picture. I should have taken it back. The one I got shouldn't cost more than $15.00 tops.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rodfv Very good half barrel planter.
Worked great for planting a couple of small trees. I only needed to drill a few drain holes in the bottom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Judy the barrel was exactly as depicted in the photo---just what we were looking for
I loved the ease of paying in advance, with the purchase ready for pick-up at the front of the store. The barrell looks wonderful in the back corner of our yard, in front of fountain grass, and filled with perennials.
