$169.00

Each of our American white oak barrel heads has lived a previous life aging Kentucky bourbon and is now completing its journey in the most beautiful, meaningful way possible – as your wedding guestbook.  A true American classic, as unique as you are.

  • Be proud of your Guestbook – This is not a reproduction wood piece – these are the real deal – these barrel heads were once used to age bourbon in Kentucky Distilleries and made from American white oak.  No inferior pine or engineered woods like others.
  • Laser Engraved, not Printed – You can see and feel the difference.  Designs are laser burned in, giving depth and a contrast to the wood while also maintaining a rustic and natural look.
  • Not just a wedding piece – After the wedding, and after this bad boy is signed, hang it up on the wall for all to see with our included wall hanging hardware.  It will be a beautiful centerpiece for years to come.
  • Authentic and unique – Each barrel head has a story as unique as your own.  They still have the original distillery stamp on the back  which designating the the location, year, distillery and other information unique to it.  There is no other barrel head like it in the world.
  • Designs Galore – With our builder, your options are endless.  And if you have something special in mind, email us and we will make it for you.
  • A solid piece of American craftsmanship – Weighs 12lbs and measures 21-22″ in diameter and around 1.5″ thick.  This baby was rolled around in rackhouses and used to store 50+ gallons of bourbon at a time.  It is solid as a rock and will stand the test of time.
  • Perfect for signatures – We make sure to include enough blank space for signing.  Includes a sharpie for signatures and fixative coating to prevent smears.

When the barrel heads arrive in our studio they are charred and bourbon soaked – which means you can still smell smokey whiskey notes when you open your package.  We prepare them for their journey by tightening the loose slats, adding a solid wood backing board to hold them firmly in place, then sanding and refinishing the top down so that it is clean, flat, and perfect for signatures. Once you give us the go-ahead, we engrave your design into the wood with our 150w laser and finish it off with a clear fixative that will make sure your guests’ messages don’t smear.

The laser will give your design varying depth and the contrast of the burned/sanded wood will give it a dynamic look perfect for your wedding, and later, your home.

Our production process usually takes 2-3 business days from when you place your order.  In cases of high demand, it could be as many as 7-10 business days.  If you are on a tight deadline, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.  Shipping will vary depending on location and service level selected at checkout.  Here’s how it works:

  • We reclaim a prime barrel head from a genuine, distillery used bourbon barrel.
  • We clean, dry, and sand it down until it’s bright and smooth – perfect for signatures.
  • We laser engrave your custom design – permanently burning in all the details.
  • A clear fixative is added that “holds” your signatures in place – your guests can write on the wood without worrying about the ink bleeding, running, or fading.
  • We pack it up and ship it to you via your preferred shipping method.
