Small wooden barrels, are crafted from European Oak .As can be appreciated from the photos it's need time to be built and finished. The artisan barrel maker still crafts these small barrels on the traditional way. Once dried oak wood is sourced, the small wooden barrel staves are cut and readied and the barrel maker skillfully starts assembling barrels manually and are eventually held together with temporary metal rings. If needed, the inside of the curved staves gets charred or toasted prior to their assembly since such small barrels can not be charred or toasted in the same way as larger wooden casks or barrels. At first, these small wooden barrels are rough from the outside, the wood barrel maker places the small barrel into the machinery and uses his experience to smoothen out the excessive edges as needed and the wooden cask starts getting into a finer and more attractive shape. At this stage, the wood barrel maker removes the temporary rings are skillfully replaces them with the final barrel hoops, which in galvanized steel, black painted or real brass as per customer request. At the customer's request,the barrel can be lacquered and at this stage the miniature wooden barrel's production process is finished and are headed to the warehouse.
