It is a shame to pass up a barrel chair if you see one for sale though, the ones made in the 1930s and 1940s are sturdily built and have springs that make them so very comfortable, but at 70 or 80 years old they do need to be recovered. The solution is a barrel chair slip cover. You can actually purchase these online now, either made to your specifications or ready made.
One option to lengthen your oak barrel's aging life is to shave several layers of oak from the inside of the staves and re-char the wood. This may extend the life of the barrel up to 10 years yet the results are not the same as new wood.
