I found someone that has a pile of used wine barrel oak slats and inserts (wood pieces in the barrel). It his scrap pieces but he is a junk seller so since I want them they are not free. He told be to make an offer. He has about two barrels full of 8" pieces. Most wear red wine. I know oak is good and being aged w/ red wine can not hurt so what do think i should offer him for the pile?

Thats a pretty good price. Here they cost about $15 for used barrels and you gotta cut em up.

Used Oak wine barrels show up on CL around here for @ $20- $40, from a local vintner, the next time I see them offered I'm jumping on them!
