Fred, that is great looking furniture. Now, are those barrels going to filled with
straight Kentucky Bourbon, or good old fashioned North Carolina 'White Lightning'?

Thanks, Bob and Ted.

(And Carol and Alice).

Ted, it took me forever to decide the building was going to be a cooperage. Don't make me figure out what goes in the barrels.

I built the furniture while I was trying to decide it was going to be a cooperage.

Thanks, Ted.

Actually, the DOB is December. It just happened to be July when I worked up the desk blotter. I guess I was thinking, since most everything I build has a lot of greenery around it, the a summer month seemed more appropriate.

Just need a few more. And then that many buckets and kegs.

Ed, It looks to me like there may be some trickery involved with this shot
I'm still waiting for Fred to chime in on this as he is the resident Cooperage'...

It does make you wonder how they did it, doesn't it? There's no sign of a crane or anything else in the photo. Maybe they kept pushing them up from the bottom?

All I know is I found the photo on the web.

Come to find out' It's the Guinness brewery in Ireland. taken in 1930. The largest brewery in the world. Founded in 1759. So it must be real. But how the heck did they pile up those barrels..

I built myself a turpentine still. And I needed lots of barrels. Doing my research I found plenty of photos with barrels stacked like that. Not as many but hundreds just the same. Google 'Turpentine barrels photos'.

Here's a load being exported.



Getting them stacked was easy as there was lots of cheap labour and no insurance!!!!
