Re: Stain for wooden barrels

Ray, barrels were not stained, but I would put steel bands on them using thin strips of aluminum foil.

Time to finish up barrel car project, which means that I have several
dozen wooden barrels to stain. Any suggestions would be appreciated;
coming out new from barrel factory would likely be a light oak color?
My only reference point is Jack Daniels barrels; every year or so my
father would drive to Lynchburg and come back with an empty barrel;
pour in several gallons of generic whiskey, roll the barrel every
month or so, and in a year you have a couple of gallons of Jack
Daniels. But those barrels were not new...
