Hi there, newbie here. I need some advice on fixings etc regarding my new project. I have numerous plans for half and full whisky barrels.
This is a photo of a gorgeous example of what I'm after, I just want to do a few little 'tweeks'.
This is the advice I'm after for this one;
1. I'd love to have the glass lid open via rotation and was wondering what you guys think would be the best fixing. A barrel hinge? Not sure if it would work.
2. Another version is to secure the lid down (don't really want to glue it) with a clip, maybe like the ones that are used with frameless glass pictures and then maybe screwed to the side of the barrel.

Nos waith da :-)
Mate, I'm a non-professional. I dunno what you're trying to explain, sorry.
