It can take more than an hour for someone respond, be patient. Check Blender cookie for tutorials, for example: http://www.blendercookie.com/2009/06/22/creating-a-wooden-barrel/ There are many examples on this site so find one that you like and work through it. You do need to learn to appropriately mark seams, UV unwrap and map.

Start with the tutorials.

the barrel tuorial dosn’t show me everything, any other tutorials?
