Shop owner takes old-fashioned approach to barrel making

Inside Bratcher Cooperage in Missouri, Doug Bratcher is working to keep history alive. Bratcher's shop makes custom barrels with tools dating back to the 1830s. While a big cooperage factory can make around 2,000 barrels a day, Bratcher makes all of his by hand.
