That is a lovely jug, and I would be enthralled to watch someone make one. Robin, does Arturo use anything to water proof his jugs with, and does he use any particular wood that is more suited to this use?

"El hombre y la madera" by ignacio abella recomends birch, chestnut, willow, ash, walnut, box wood? (boj) & yew.

Birch was a favourite for milk jugs, it was said to absorb little to no liquid.
