    Bondo, JB Weld or any of the Simpson Construction Epoxies available at Home Depot or Lowes. With Epoxy, use a trowel wet with Denatured Alcohol. Saves a lot of finish sanding.

    Cedar might be the way to go. At least I will know that Moths will not be eating my barrel. And you guys are correct about the selections of good woods here in Arizona. In my Yard I have two Mesquite trees and an old Jacaranda. Great for nose...
