Very interesting and well written book on the craft.

If you are any kind of woodworker, you will be amazed as to what type of craftsman a cooper was and the skills they had to have. Well written and very informative.
Otiel
A very well written and informative history of cooperage, the terminology, and tools used in its practice. Not big on the "how-to" aspect, but a good starting point, nevertheless.
Cha
A few illustrations and pictures are nice. The author imparts a little romance here and there. Certainly very thorough in every regard. Since it's pretty cheap, be sure to pick one up if you're interested.
Ann
Outstanding book. Covered the subject of Coopering from every conceivable angle.

My great grandfather was a cooper. I now know how he made his living.

I was searching for a how-to book on coopering. This is not it! The title is not misleading, it does provide an anthropological study and history of coopering. It's just very light on useful information for anyone who wants to make a barrel. Otherwise, it was reasonably entertaining.
INTERESTING TRADE SECRETS OF MAKING A BARREL AND OTHER HINTS FOR THE HAND CRAFTSMAN. USE OF OLD TOOLS IS EXPLAINED THAT GIVES THE READER A GREATER APPRECIATION OFHOW IT WAS DONE YEARS AGO.
