Live Oak Wine Décor is the result of a lifelong interest in woodworking and the unique beauty of upcycled oak wine barrels and wooden wine crates.

Favoring environmentally friendly finishes and techniques we transform barrels used in winemaking, and wooden wine shipping crates from wineries around the world. With the use of modern CNC controlled routers and lasers we can create a personalized engraved piece for a perfect wedding or housewarming gift.

Utilizing these barrels and crates along with other reclaimed wood and carefully selected fine wood accent pieces for useful, unique custom made and personalized home décor and furniture avoids the wasteful discarding of them in landfills.

All pieces are meant to be personalized pieces of art with unique styling and natural beauty. All designs are handcrafted by the artist in his workshop in Millstadt Illinois.
