  • Patent number: 10260032
    Abstract: Arrays of closely-spaced holes or cross-grain grooves are formed on the inside surfaces of the staves of a barrel, and/or on an elongated wooden member to greatly increase the amount of end grain wood exposed to the liquid and thereby increase the rate of aging the liquid. The holes and grooves in the staves extend only through the wood in order to maintain the structural integrity of the staves. The amount of end grain wood exposed is selected to produce the desired degree of aging in the desired amount of time. Used barrels can be reconstructed by cutting grooves in the inside surface of the barrel's side wall to expose new end grain wood To produce aging during re-use of the barrel.

  • Patent number: 9603278
    Abstract: A server casing includes a frame having first and second plates and a plate connecting structure including first and second side boards extending from the first and second plates respectively and having first and second opening structures and first and second riveting structures respectively. A first outer periphery of the first opening structure is larger than a first inner periphery, and a first limiting surface extends therebetween. A second outer periphery of the second opening structure is less than a second inner periphery, and a second limiting surface extends therebetween. The first and second riveting structures have third and fourth limiting surfaces respectively. When the second riveting structure is engaged with the second opening structure and the second and fourth limiting surfaces abuts against each other, the first riveting structure is pressed to engage with the first opening structure and the first and third limiting surfaces abuts against each other.

  • Publication number: 20130048641
    Abstract: Disclosed is a trash container with a user actuated release mechanism that releases the container from the base allowing lifting of the container off the base, thereby leaving the filled trash bag disposed on the base of the trash can. The trash container of the present invention enables removal of the trash bag without requiring lifting of the filled trash bag to the top of the trash container. In this manner, the filled trash bag can be dragged or lifted slightly when being taken out to the curbside for pickup. In another embodiment of a trash container, a door panel is locked in place using a locking ring that once removed enables opening of the door panel to remove the trash bag. In this manner, the filled trash bag can be dragged or lifted slightly when being taken out to the curbside for pickup.
