Like most containers, a cask represents the feminine principle. An apparently bottomless cask represents needless effort. It is more likely to be the content of the cask which has meaning on a psychological level and such a dream indicates our ability to be creative with raw materials - to fashion something of value. Since a cask or barrel is often hand-made, to dream of one indicates the care taken in dealing with our own emotional make-up. This is because a cask was, and is, mostly used for storage. For a woman a cask will represent her ability to preserve her culture or ideas, but for a man it is more likely that he feels he has the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of his labours.
