Barrile Making Workshop with
Juan Fuentes & Papo DelValle
Barril-Making Workshop - Day One
On the first day, we learned how to make the form of a small barril drum from raw planks of wood.
Techniques included planing the sides of the wood planks down at an angle until they matched perfectly.
After many hours of that we glued the planks together!
Making the form that will hold the barrile pieces
After all the pieces are up and numbered...
We start planing...
It's not perfect yet...
So we keep planing, planing, planing...
Now it's time to start gluing!!
...to hold the glued drum while it dries
We hold the banner high for Puerto Rico everyday!
Thank you in advance for your donation of any size!!
