Scored a scotch cask today

Empty unfortunately.

A local retailer had this old scotch cask on display. I happened to mention it would make a interesting addition to my office, perhaps as an end table.  Much to my surprise, they told me that since the promotion was over I could have it as long as I could move it myself. Challenge Accepted.  Admittedly it did have a little weight to it- the shape and size posed a bit of a challenge while trying to get it in the house without destroying the hardwood floors.

It needs a little cleanup and is missing the two lower hoops, but overall it’s in decent shape.  Not sure exactly what I’m going to do with it, perhaps with my Roost it might make a good standing desk.
