For a barrel of diameter D, you can make a CCylinder of diameter 
D, and then a box of side length D/4 to sit inside the cylinder, 
but make it as tall as the cylinder + cap. That way, it can 
balance on the ground (flat end of rectangle) but will roll just 
fine when pushed over (rolly side of ccylinder).
