Step 2: Choosing the planks
I also noticed that I couldn't just grab just any planks an expect them to fit together, as shown in the photos there were very large gaps, between the pieces I wanted to use.
It was about now that I really wish that I paid a bit more attention to how the barrel came apart, well at lest numbered the planks before I cut them.
In the end I had to carefully look at the marks on the planks and put them back together the same way they came off the barrel
