This is a bingo money barrel I made for Mary Lou. I don’t know what kind of wood it is but it is tight grained and had a few cracks. they were filled with turquoise and epoxy. I added some shot of the tuning process.

It is finished with clear gloss lacquer.

I also made her daughter one and they both won on Wed. Night Bingo!

Nice barrels Jim. I hope these are a lucky charm. I made a few the past couple days. I like how you hollow out the top. Maybe you should make yourself a huge one and win it all at bingo.

Very COOL barrel, Jim!

Good work Jim. A barrel of money is always handy to have around. It seems to have worked some magic for your friends.
