Barrel staves are generally 36"-37" long, and this pack contains three staves: one Small (1-1/2"-2-1/2" wide), one Medium (2-1/2" -3-1/2" wide) and one Large (3-1/2" and wider). Staves have been dried and brushed to remove excess char. The charring of these staves is from the firing of the barrel prior to aging the whiskey for four or more years. These staves are, of course, bent from barrel making, but they can be flattened by simply soaking them in warm water and then clamping to your workbench for several hours. Staves are perfect for projects ranging from Adirondack chairs and benches to small boxes and accent pieces!
