The one I saw was for making barrels specifically for aging some sort of alcoholic beverage. The cooper was working in an area that had at least one floor height burner going all the time and he kept taking the barrels over and scorching the inside to enhance the flavour of whatever was then stored in them. A lot of specialty sawing to the pieces as well.

Amazing how long they lasted underground.
