How do you create a grid like the one in the video?

The grid seen in the overview video is made with the Sandbox Tools extension that ships with SketchUp. The From Scratch button is the second from the left in the Sandbox Tools toolbar.

How do you create a barrel with many vertices like the one in the video?

The barrel seen at 2:03 in the overview video is made by simply extruding a circle into a tube shape. Then, either the top or bottom circle of the tube is copied multiple times across the tube. (Just the edges, not the face.)
