It most likely started it life as a water tank and was converted to a grain bin. The wood is most likely cypris (wrong spelling) and each board is numbered to fit together properly. The rings are put on the outside to hold it tight so it dose not leek when it was a tank. It would hold together better if the rings were on the outside and would hold its shape better and be more ridged. Using cables on the outside will let the tank or bin flex its shape and will likely fail that's why they use the heavy steel rings to hold them together, They don't flex. Bandit

It started out as a 20 ft silo that held silage. The owner told me that his dad replaced it with a concrete silo back in the 60's. Him and his dad cut it in two and made two "corn cribs" out of it. This one is 10ft high and 15 ft in diameter. I live on a vintage 1886 farm and this would fit in just fine with my barn and machine shed. I'm mainly using it for show, and hay storage.
