Default Wine Barrel Rack

Does anyone have some plans or rough measurments for a 55 gallon wine barrel wooden rack? I am due to pick this thing up in the next 24 hours and need to crank out a rack for this to sit on and house beer for the next year.

Help is much appreciated.

I just took some 2x4's I had laying around, traced the curve, cut, and like magic had a rack. Doesn't need to be pretty.

Looks like the part that is curved out is 2x6.

Take a 2x6 and make the floor box. Then take any left over pieces and make 4 wedges that you then can nail down once you get the barrel. It then can be adjusted for a bigger or smaller barrel. Not that the nice curved one wouldn't work, but I don't have a jigsaw and so what I can do with a circular saw is make squares and triangles.

And without being nearby to it right now, if you make a rack that is about two feet from end to end, you can fit a full 60 gallon barrel or a half 30 gallon barrel. If using my above patented wedges, you can then adjust for either size (in the future)

Sorry, you are right. The end pieces with the curve are 2x6 and the supports are 2x4.
