I found this on the web.

Model barrels

It's in French and English

Fantastic modelling skills in wood.

If I get time I'll try and follow his barrel making methods. Not sure I'll achieve the same results though. rabbit

Nice! Looks indeed better than a barrel turned out of 1 single piece of wood.

Out of interest - here are the barrels from Mr Maquettes that I bought. They're turned from walnut and although they can't match the ones above, at 70 cents each they're probably cheaper than making them myself. particularly as I don't have a lathe...

I need to do a bit of work to paint in the metal banding but I think they're OK at the price

It would appear Mr. Maquette had a good profit the day you visited him. Very Happy The barrels look good - just don't let the rivet counters know they are walnut and not oak!
