Mining industry became popular for the use of barrels for storing purposes. Now mining is not a usual thing for example in Latin countries so the barrels are being used for other purposes.

No Ben, whatever comes up for word varification is from blogspot, not me. It sure stopped the spam that was getting posted on the back pages though.

I'm going to drop it for a while and see what happens. It you think the words are nasty, you aught to see what they post when i'm not looking.

You are right about smoking barrels, saw filers would be out of their league on that one.
I always had appreciation for the old time barrel makers and wheelwrights along with cabinet makers.

Yep, the saw makers solved a big problem, and the shaper machine, with the curved carriage for the edges solved another, but the barrel is still hand fitted and steamed into shape. Wine barrels are "toasted" by puting white oak shavings inside and burning, while gently rolling the barrel around for and even toast. How heavily it was burned is rated with a stamp on the outside that tells you if it has a light, medium, or heavy toast. Do that with a fancy machine, saw guy!
