Have seen so very many videos on utube that claim to be helpfule, or to teach how to do something, and posted by obviously confused people, so this video shows how to do something that is absooutely valuable information.

Make one of these every year, use oak and char the inside, then stick it away for 5+ years, and you'll think it is nectar from heaven.

You know , I had plans fro today; getting on with stuff type of thing. Thanks to this video and its multifarious links , I have spent the whole day looking at cask and barrel making - Fascinating , thank you so much. I like the method they use for finding the radius of the lids and bottoms. Still wondering how they work out the stave length/curvature, so if anyone knows , I would be most interested.

Theo, great video, you should not post things like this because it makes me want to try making a small one just to see if I can do it and my list is long enough. I don't guess it will hurt to put it at the end of the list. Of course I'll do it with the CNC!

Man, that guy made it look so easy! I was also interested in how the compass helped him get the inside radius set right. It looked super simple but yet, most confusing. And thanks to this video, I ended up using time to watch a guy make a homemade piece for his car out of an aluminum casting and then boring, milling and such. Was interesting but I can't do it...and now I can't turn back the clock...hmmm....lol

I was curious how he determined the radius using a divider so I asked my son. Here's his response.

"What the guy knows is that the side-length of an inscribed regular hexagon equals that of the circumscribing circle’s radius. So what he does is mark off a designated point in the groove and then traverses the boundary of the circle. If he gets back to the point he started in exactly six steps, then the divider setting equals the radius of the circle."
