I found this clip on "Utube". It's Beam oriented and gives a good run down on how barrels are made.

I remember someone (here) asking me to get them "inside" a cooperage. Well, let me tell ya, it was akin to getting a act passed by Congress! The deed was done but many restrictions were put upon my visiting friend.

I ventured into one just down the road. Not the cooperage on the video. He (the owner) finally caught up with me and was not a "happy camper".

I know how difficult it can be to get a "birds-eye" view from the inner core of a cooperage. I thought many of you would like to see this clip.
