Thanks

Hey JBC: I just looked up toasting wine barrels. Yes they do toast them. But they only toast the inside of the barrel. Light, medium, and heavy toast. Sometimes they even char wine barrels depending on the wine. My advice to you is cut staves to your desired dementions making sure all 4 sides have been sanded or cut down to raw wood. Then toast and char to your pleasure. I’m glad I could help. :D :wink:

Easy solution ZB , Drink contents of container, sit container in warm/hot dry place, wood shrinks and stick can be removed.

You can make whisky in a reflux still, you can make vodka in a potstill,
and you can eat chicken noodle soup with a crescent wrench. But...
