Watch this video to see how they are made, I guarantee you will be impressed!
Because each wine barrel used in the production of wine is stamped or coopered (see glossary below) with the insignia, region, type of wine in the barrel or just the vineyard label of the corresponding winery, each barrel has a very distinctive look. To make it even better, during the wine production process each barrel is rubbed on the outside with the grape skins of the wine inside. This means the oak soaks up that wonderful red glow or has golden brown tones from the combination of the wonderful oak wood and the grape skins.
Your floor can have endless possibilities because it can be made from a combination of the inside and the outside of the barrel. This gives you: all plain red, golden brown, a mixture of red and brown and when the stamps from the vineyards are mixed in, the result is really astounding.
Your wine cellar can and will be not only extraordinary but unique; there are no two floors that are made with wine barrels alike in the world. Your wine cellar floor will stand far and away above the norm and as an added bonus you can even take it a step further and have your counter tops made to match.
How to go green
Wine cellar flooring and counter tops purchased from Coastal Custom Wine Cellars come from the only provider of reclaimed wine barrels in the world. Once a wine barrel has served its purpose, and the effective life-span of a wine barrel is three years on average, rather than being sold as planters or firewood or put into landfill, we are able, through a unique process, to turn this wonderful wood into something that will be your pride and joy for years to come.
Coastal Custom Wine Cellars prides itself in using both the inside and the outside of the barrel to ensure nothing goes to waste, each of the stave's is split apart so essentially you are left with a flat piece of the stave from the inside and a flat piece of the stave from the outside. This is why Coastal Custom Wine Cellars can offer such diversity in the coloring of your wine cellar floor, the markings the barrel rings make as well as the normal wear and tear found in a used wood product will really give your custom cellar added sparkle.
Cooperage: Incorporates stamps and markings from the top and bottom of the barrels. The wineries use the markings to identify the contents of the barrels. Stave: The Stave is the vertical wood that makes up the sides of the barrel. The hoops (metal bands) are removed leaving distinctive markings behind. Infusion: Wood from the inside of the barrel that is naturally stained by the wines. No artificial dyes are used to enhance the coloring.

You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use.

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo.

It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
