I salvaged a monstrous walnut log from a 20foot high pile of logs poised to be burned. From the log I carved 3 large drums. This is the one I kept.

Really nice! I would love to know how to make one. We have a couple that we bought on ebay but being able to make one would be super!! Do you have any pics of the process?
Awesome job!
