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!

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by XXXX Great Planters
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 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Don't trust the online inventory
Home Depot's website said there were only 3 of these in Illinois, and they were located in Chicago. I drove to the city for work this morning instead of taking the train, so I could purchase these for a Mother's Day gift. After placing my order online and receiving the confirmation, I was called by the store and informed that they were no longer available.
I am deeply disappointed with Home Depot. Such a large and generally great company should have a functioning inventory system which interfaces properly with their e-commerce site.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TCLo These are the real deal
The ones I picked up were a darker color than pictured here. As these are going to be used for vegetable gardening, that didn't present an issue for me. They are fantastic! They're heavy! The bands are a bit rusted, but the barrels are holding together great, so they haven't been allowed to dry out. The barrels are all scorched inside and most have the most heavenly smell of sweet alcohol. I actually had to open the windows of my SUV on the drive home and was hoping I wouldn't get pulled over :) I'd highly recommend these to anyone who lacks large, usable land for plantings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larissa Was exactly what I wanted, not what I thought I was getting
Based on the picture, and what I had looked at elsewhere, I felt like I had to settle on a different half whiskey barrel than what I really wanted. I figured "this will do" but it wasn't what I was hoping to find. I ordered it online anyway, and went to the store to pick it up and it was EXACTLY what I hoped for, not what was pictured - they were Jack Daniel's half whiskey barrels. You could still smell the alcohol and see the burn. I was thrilled. I bought six of them, and they are great. Rustic, but what I was thrilled to find.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa Perfect for a fountain
We got this barrel to make a fountain in our backyard, it's great! Also bought a liner, which we didn't need. The wood absorbs water and swells, no leaking at all. Those whiskey distillers were on to something! Get one, you'll love it.
