Created for a discerning clientele, Heritage Handcrafted uses traditional woodworking methods to build furniture and other original pieces from a nontraditional medium. Specifically, reclaimed Whiskey, Bourbon & Wine oak barrel wood known as "staves".
Founded in 2012, the inspiration behind Heritage Handcrafted, according to the artist-craftsman & founder (James Broyhill), was to create something unique out of something with true character. Working reclaimed barrel staves in the traditional way is demanding, exacting and physical. While the medium presents challenges, the naturally occurring patina, preserved reminisce of the barrel woods past life, offers a distinctly unique piece that will be enjoyed for generations.
