If you cut the top out, be sure to cut around the inside of the rim to leave the rim intact. This retains the strength and provides the rim for clipping to. Jig saw is easy.
You can probably find a barrel locally for $25 to $50. I prefer a white barrel (natural) but this is not necessary. Black is difficult to clean.
