OLD OAK BARREL

THIS WAS UNEARTHED IN A BACKYARD GARDEN SHED.WAS COVERED IN DUST/ DIRT AND FILLED WITH JUNK. NOW I HAVE IT!  I HAVE UNIQUE AND AMAZING IDEAS FOR IT.IT NEEDS ALOT OF TLC !! PLUS I WILL HAVE TO MAKE CURVED HINGES ABOUT 3 FT LONG.LIKE PIANO HINGES BUT A BIT MORE STRONGER.UNLESS THERES A COMPANY OUT THERE WHO SELLS THEM.BUT SINCE I SAW THIS BARREL IDEAS ARE COMING INTO MY HEAD STRONG AND FAST,AS TO WHAT I CAN MAKE FROM THIS.NOT SURE HOW OLD THIS BARREL IS,BUT MAY BE LUCKY AND FIND A DATE STAMPED SOMEWHERE??
