Step 1: Buying the barrel

Picture of Buying the barrel
First you need to buy new oak barrel.

Step 2: Moonshining

Then you must make grain moonshine & fill your barrel.
The barrel must store in cold, dark & damp place 2-5 years.
For detailed instructions see http://homedistiller.ru or http://homedistiller.org

Step 3: Drying-out

WARNING! For this step you'll need to have a good health & help your friends!
DON'T DO IT ALONE!
You must drink all whiskey with good company.

Step 4: Open out

Next morning (evening) if you remember your name you can take the saw & try to dismember your barrel. Use the rest of whiskey as liquid leveler. If you have not any more whiskey use the beer.

Find & mark the center of the dial (barrel's bottom). Drill the hole in this point. Use drill for wood 8 mm. diameter. Drill from face to inside.

Prepare the hook. Make the hollow & mount the hook with the screws.

Step 5: Finishing

Mount the movement to the dial.
Break your mind with hands choosing. Mount & dismount different hands until you satisfied.
Insert the battery & mount to the wall. Invite your friends for barrel clock party.
Thats all folks!

That's excellent.

Maybe, in another iteration, the numbers could be branded into the wood.

Thank you Kiteman!
I planned to do copper handmade hands & numeral dots (Whiskey make on copper distillators) but copper details looks not well & non-contrast. I was braked my mind...
Oh, another idea - why not use wrought-iron house numerals?

Today I'll receive new stainless stell hands. It must looks with stainless hoops.
Then I'll try to select some dots or slashes. Dots like goblets will looks fine.
Another idea! Industrial barrels marked with laser. I wanna win laser cutter! )))))
Haha, don't we all?
