    Barrel making (cooperage) for bourbon...

    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.

    Very nice video. Thanks for the link

    Looks like it was perhaps filmed in the late 70's.

    Neat video... there's quite a variety of interesting machinery involved in the process.

    I love the Cheap Trick tour shirt the guy is wearing at 00:51 into the video!
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!
