I'm currently investigating barrel making for the new Cooper skill.
Barrel on Wikipedia is worth a look.
How oak barrels are made gives you an excellent idea of the process though they use modern equipment.
How a wooden barrel is made is also interesting especially the difference between American and French oak.
