I have been waiting all year for these to get primed. By primed I mean falling apart. You have to wet these things to keep the staves swelled enough to stay together. Most places don't do that so as the summer goes on, the bands fall and then the staves fall out.
I picked this one up for 10 bucks at Lowe's. As the summer goes on and they fall completley apart they will want me to haul them off for nothing.
I say Good Riddance.
What am I going to do with them you ask ?
