Barrels & Camp Sets

Many a chuck wagon headed out on a cattle drive with an oak water barrel mounted on the side. You can now own one of these authentic white oak barrels that represent a period in our history when home was the open range. All our oak barrels are coopered here in the United States. Cooperage is the name applied to the ancient process of making wooden kegs and barrels. A "tight" barrel is made to hold liquids and is usually made from oak. New barrels will leak some until the liquid in them caused the wood to swell. Today, barrels are lined with paraffin to be water tight. When barrels are stored in a heated building or located in a very dry climate there can be some shrinkage causing minor leaks. When water is added to the barrel it will swell and stop leaking, usually within an hour or two.
