My first, handmade barrel



There is only decoration. I was not thinking about tightness, but shouldn’t be a problem with that. Type of wood: oak, finish: danish oil, time: about 5 days.

  1. Only thing missing was the river reeds that was supposed to go between the staves to give it a tight seal top and bottom. I have a 60 year old scottish 12 bander x500 litre monster i have been sanding it for 2 years now, never ending but good fun, Good job their!

  2. Wybacz mi, że nie jestem świetny w tym języku, ale drewniane szpilki byłyby lepsze dla głowy. Nie chciałbym tam pić alkoholu

  3. You do great work. Btw, push with your legs, not your shoulders when using a plane. Just a suggestion.

  4. Great job on a first barrel. I’m sure you gained great respect for the coopers of old and what an art it is to make a proper water tight barrel. Good show.

  6. really cool. it doesn't look like it will hold water though. nice to see it done without power tools.. it might come down to this some day.

  7. A jak to sie zastanawiam dlaczego te beczki się robi wypukłe, to duużo więcej kombinowania niz gdyby robić proste scianki, do magazynowania to więcej strat objętościowo niż przy płaskich, jedynie walory wizualne bo pękata ładniejsza, ale kto je ogląda w sumie, może chodzi o szczelność ale tez niezbyt o rozumiem.

  8. Hang on, hang on its been a pleasure watching you make this barrel, but is it water tight?

    I checked out your video for a purpose, does it work?

  9. Great video.very few acomplished woodworkers would attempt a massive project like this one.A loabor of love .

  10. Looks great !  There is an informative video by a cooper in England that shows how they are made water tight. By hand.  I am sure you will not have trouble finding it.

  11. Impressive! I've been thinking of making one but probably gonna use some power tools. I hope it turns out as well as yours!

  12. Witam.Świetna robota,pokazałeś jak przy pomocy prostych narzędzi można zrobić taką piękną beczkę.Pozdrawiam.

  14. Literally beyond my comprehension that you did this. Even WITH power tools, this would take me months…
