I am looking for someone that has skills in coopering (bucket or barrows) in the Phoenix area. If you know of anyone that has these skills in the Arizona area please reach out to me. Thank you

You might want to specify if you want a wet cooper
or a dry cooper.

I’ve never made a cask, or a barrel, but, I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express once.

Nice to see another Phoenix area LJ’er.

You didn’t happen to buy a lottery ticket at the Fountain Hills 4 Sons gas station a couple weeks ago did you?

Seems like someone did a class on bucket making on here a while ago that might be a good resource. It looked fairly interesting.

EDIT: Here you go. The link to the class is broken, but stefang is the one who did the class.

You may want to specify whether you need a cooper for
demonstration/teaching purposes or if you want a cooper
to produce a product using modern machinery if he
chooses to.

lot more people out there named cooper than there are actual coopers anymore. I’d love to learn it, but not sure if that will ever happen
