Show your four-legged companion just how much you appreciate them with a custom bourbon barrel dog bed! After all, who do you think keeps watch over your finest Kentucky Bourbons when you’re away? Man’s best friend does!
While working on some of our latest bourbon barrel projects, we noticed that our Jack Russell, Bugsy, seemed to enjoy the smell of bourbon and white oak char just as much as we did. Seeing as how she has kept us company through many glasses of bourbon over the last 15 years, we figured she deserved her very own custom barrel dog bed. We used a half barrel, and cut a wide opening in the front so she would easily be able to get in and out. The existing metal barrel hoops were reinforced and screwed into place to ensure durability. We also lightly sanded the interior and exterior before sealing it, exposing the beauty of the wood and char, and making sure that the charred interior would not rub off.
To customize Bugsy’s new bed further, we very lightly painted her name on the inside and scripted “WOOF-ford Reserve” on the exterior. To keep it simple, we decided to place her existing dog bed and pillow inside. As it turns out, many standard size dog beds will fill the interior perfectly. So far, Bugsy seems to be enjoying it quite a bit!
The materials for this bed have been reclaimed from 55 gallon charred-oak barrels that were used in the making of Bourbon Whiskey in Kentucky. After aging for many, many seasons in the heart of the Bluegrass, these used barrel staves and barrel heads are lightly sanded, sealed, and reinforced to insure longevity. Each piece is hand-painted by Kentucky artisans. BarrelHeadsKY.com is a subsidiary of Lexington Furniture Company. Our store has been a staple of the Lexington, KY community for over 50 years. We produce a line of products from reclaimed bourbon barrels that were used in the production of bourbon in Kentucky. All of our products are manufactured by artisans in the state of Kentucky.

If you follow our social media, you know that we’ve been working on a couple of “top secret’ projects. This is one that we have been working on for a few weeks. We wanted to make sure that it met not only the needs of our customers, but their aesthetic wants as well. This reclaimed bourbon barrel has been very lightly sanded, sealed, and reinforced to ensure durability. Staves have been removed to create an opening and a sturdy 1/2 inch glass shelf has been added. The interior has also been lightly sanded and sealed to showcase the beautifully charred staves. An LED light has been installed to keep your bourbon or other display items well lit.
Each barrel’s head can be customized and hand-painted by Kentucky artisans with any of our available designs or custom designs.
Each barrel with glass shelf exhibits natural aged wood characteristics. Each barrel is unique. Imperfections in wood and gaps between staves are normal. The imperfections in the barrels are what make them beautiful. After all, they aged delicious bourbon whiskey for many, many Kentucky seasons.

Jim Beam has a full family of bourbons, each unique, and expertly made by the Beam family, who has perfected the art of bourbon making over the last 200 years. Growing up in Kentucky, I have many memories of driving past the Frankfort distilleries on the way to Church, or visiting the welcome center and distillery in Clermont. There is even a 200 mile race that some of our employees have participated in the begins at the Clermont location.
We knew that we needed to get the most iconic brands of bourbon on our products. As one of the producers that has re-focused on small batch bourbons, we are honored to use the Jim Beam logo on our barrels. (And no,

We’ve begun production of quarter barrel heads! These are barrel heads that have been cut directly from the barrel, leaving the metal hoop intact around the perimeter. These are larger, heavier, and stand off of a wall further than a typical barrel head.
We reclaim these used barrel heads and seal and reinforce them to insure longevity. Each barrel head is hand-painted by Kentucky artisans with local KY style and flavor. Barrel heads are complete with wall hanging hardware installed.
All of our current designs will be available. Many of our customers are using the quarter barrel heads as serving trays, or have even used them as a guest registry for weddings. Just sign the head with a permanent marker or paint pen. We think this makes a very unique gift! Plus, we can personalize with names, dates, and initials.
