Wood Whiskey Barrel Plans


I have recently done a restoration on an old 24" tall Oak whiskey barrel, which has sparked my interest to make my own. I am hoping that someone can tell me where I can find these.......I am only looking for plans for the dimensions to cut the angle and taper for the staves, also the croze bevel & groove with diameter of the top and bottom lids.

I don't know where you can find plans, but to see how they are made, go to youtube, there are tons of videos there showing how they are made.

I wish you luck. Everything I've heard is that they take years to learn to build properly. I had that same idea when I was starting woodworking, and was discouraged by what I found.

No help from me...but I go to mystic seaport in CT a couple of dozen times a year and love to watch the coopers using the old tools to make barrels! Interesting point, when the whaling she headed out for a cole of years all of the barrels were in pieces to save space! On board cooper would assemble them as they were needed! Ron

That would have to be some precise work with hand tools. That is amazing.
