Very nice work. Were you not able to reuse the top of the barrel?

Just curious if you fastened the hoops to that staves in any way? As they barrel dries out it will shrink and the hoops will definately fall off and it will become a pile of staves. I've built alot of things from old whiskey barrels and can speak from experience (read catastrophic barrel failure).
