Do you have a circular saw? 

 

 

You could also use a handsaw, as per this - https://www.doityourself.com/stry/how-to-cut-a-wine-barrel-in-half

Re: Wine barrel cutting

Great idea @Maddogmick54 - they come up great and are easily done.

 

I've done a few and have found it easy enough with a Jigsaw or Circular Saw.

 

Make sure you line it with black plastic to help preserve the wood a bit and a few drainage holes are a good idea. 

 

Keen to see how it turns out!
