Motor City Barrels
Motor City Barrels started out as a project for owner Robbie Lambert’s wedding and ended with him and his Dad having their own company!
Motor City Barrels
The barrel materials that are used are from the whiskey, wine and beer barrels that are used to age alcohol. When the barrels are no longer useable for this process, they are typically just thrown out. Motor City Barrels repurposed these barrels into furniture and decor. 
Motor City Barrels
The barrels must first be taken apart, wood from the inside scraped out and then sanded. Finally the fun part of sawing and assembling the pieces can start!
We currently carry their wall bottle openers, candles, cork stopper, heart and peace sign made from steel and more! We’re proud to carry this creative Michigan based company!
