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.

Interesting stuff, and it's grand how it turned out. Still a lot of work (am so very glad Ard is taking this up), but nevertheless an asset to the system.
