Default Oak Barrel Sources??

I've read about the benefits of aging in oak barrels. Anybody know of a good source? What sizes/volumes do they come in?

Thanks, Kahuna, they do look suitable. I was concerned that I'd have to come up with 20 or so gallons to fill a barrel. Good to see the available sizes are smaller.
