Tip 1: How to make a barrel

Cooper - it is a profession that is slowly disappearing.Why should we buy a tub or tubs where you can buy a good plastic container.However, the barrel "alive" until now.And she does not seek to withdraw from life.Salting any vegetables will be really tasty and fragrant when producing it in good oak cask.
Guide
1
try to make themselves a barrel.Start with riveting.Choose a timber.For salting and pickling barrel is better to make oak barrels for honey should be made of linden, sycamore and aspen.You can take alder, poplar, alder.In riveting usually let the lower part of the trunk of an old tree.Split in half chock, which is longer than the future riveting centimeters 5. Each of the halves in half prick yet.And so on, until we turn out the pieces of the size of 5-10h2,5-3 see.
2
dry them pinned blank in well-ventilated area last month.Better - more.Already dried billet handle plow and a plane, starting from the outside of the obstrugivaniya riveting.Then planed sides.Post-processing sides
jointers
3
In the next step we handle the internal surface of our riveting.Excess can be skived a plane or an ax.If staves width varies - nothing wrong with that.
4
Now make hoops.Better to take steel.We take them for hot-rolled steel strip thickness of 1.5-2 mm, the width should be 30-50 mm.We measure the barrel at the alleged location of the hoop with a tolerance of up to double the bandwidth.Hammer attach the ribbon shape of a ring.Drill holes at the ends of the rivet.By location hoops are onion (center), TESDA (region) and neck (intermediate).
5
assembly.This process is carried out on a flat surface.Straps fastened to the hoop 2 riveting, opposite one another.Then spread riveting very close to the previous one by one.And so long as the hoop is full rivets.Check the density of vanishing edges riveting.
6
Then trim the ends of the core rock and put on 2nd hoop until it stops.The 2-3 mm from TESDA hoop cut the skeleton of a plane and we clean the ends of the staves.Likewise, we proceed to the other end drums.
7
When contraction of the core barrel hoops do not need any operation such as steaming or provarkoy very core.
8
remains to make Dona.Putting the bottom of the shield and prostrogat prifugovannogo on the sides of clover.Sweet clover are fastened with nails.We find the radius of the future of the bottom, and the bottom Scrollsaw with a margin of 1-1.5 mm.
9
weakens wrap, insert the bottom and rap until it stops.The bottom should not go tight.In this case, the hoop weaken.If the bottom is loose - tighten the hoop.
10
Now we need to make sure that we do not have cracks in the barrel.We pour a little water and see where there is not flowing.Leakage between the staves will tell you that you need to reduce the bottom, pare excess.If the water runs right through the bottom, there will need to disassemble the barrel and from the narrow staves.
11
When nothing flows, set the second floor with a hole for the infusion of 30-32 mm.Making the plug and insert it into place.Flank ready.

Tip 2: How to build a barrel

vats and barrels and today are widely used in the economy.Homemade pickles, kvass or honey, which is stored in barrels, acquire a unique taste.However, Cooper - a trade infrequently.How to collect barrel their own hands?
How to build a barrel
you need
  • - ax;
  • - wood;
  • - jack-plane;
  • - plane;
  • - jointer;
  • - steel band;
  • - a hammer;
  • - Drill;
  • - wire;
  • - staples.
Guide
1
Pick wood.Please be aware that the choice of timber depends on the purpose for which you intend to use barrel .For example, pine and oak is absolutely not suitable for storing honey.Honey pine barrels will smell resin and oak - darken.For such barrels it is recommended to use aspen, linden, alder, poplar and plane trees.For pickling, salting and urinating best approach is oak.For other purposes, you can use cedar, spruce, beech, larch, fir and birch.
2
should know that for the rivets is recommended to use the lower part of the trunk of an old tree.However, if this is not possible fit and thin trunks.
3
manufactured riveting follows from raw wood.Take a suitable chock.Its length should be 6-7 cm longer than the desired length of the final riveting.Carefully chop it in half with an ax.Chop half the resulting lumps again in half.Proceed by analogy - the number of splits is dependent on the initial thickness of the chocks.As a result, you should get the blank width of 7-12 cm and a thickness of 3 cm.
4
Dry thoroughly riveting.To expedite the process, you can use the dryer.
5
Make a template to check the radius of curvature of surfaces.It can be made of a thin board, comparing with any finished barrel.
6
Choose riveting.Please be aware that riveting may be cooperage or kadushechnoy.In kadushechnoy - one end is another.In cooperage - expansion of the middle.As a rule, the ratio between the narrowest and the widest part is 1: 1.8.
7
carefully crafted a riveting using planer and sherhebelem.Should first pare outer surface, and then the side.In the process, it is necessary to check the curvature of the staves, referring to an earlier pattern.Treat sidewall stave jointer.Carefully crafted interior of the riveting using the plane.
8
Fabricate hoops of steel tape.For this it is necessary to measure barrel hoop tension in place.Cut a strip of desired length and bend it into a ring, hitting it with a hammer.Drill the holes and install the rivets of the steel wire.
9
Collect barrel must be on a flat surface.Take two riveting and attach them to the hoop with special brackets against each other.Fill in the resulting gaps, gradually setting for riveting riveting.
10
Upset hoop, tapping it with a hammer, and make sure that riveting fit snugly together.Put the middle hoop and lay siege to it with naboynika.
11
barrel Place on a flat surface and mark the line of crop.Put TESDA hoop, cut the frame and treat the cut line using a planer.Repeat the same procedure with the other end of the barrel.
12
Make TESDA groove into which is inserted into the bottom of the barrel.The width and depth of the groove must be 3 mm.
13
Calculate the radius of the bottom.Assemble the bottom shield affixed with nails.Cut chamfer the edges, using a jack-plane.
14
Insert the bottom of the barrel in .To do this, you must first install one edge in the groove bottom, and then enter the rest by tapping it with a hammer.Check with tightness barrels.
15
Make a second bottom by analogy.Drill it in the filler opening.Make a stopper.The height of the cork must match the thickness of the bottom of the barrel.
