Lightbulb Help With Wooden Bucket

I am planning on building a wooden bucket out of some reclaimed wood I have. This bucket is for decorative purposes only. I am thinking of leaving the exterior with the natural weathered finish. Any tips from those that have made buckets before. Thank You in advance.

Do you have a picture of what you have in mind? I'm thinking all that would be necessary is miter pieces of wood to make the circle and spline the miters Then when that is assembled cut a bottom for the bucket on the appropriate angle.

Hello AT,

If just a "faux bucket" for looks, that should be pretty straight forward joinery, and there are gobs of info on Coopering in general.

If you really want to get into this, understand that Coopering is an art onto it self, but the basics are a starting point for anyone in historic replication work... I will check back in to help where I can, as it is both functional and rewarding work, for not only just buckets but hot-tubes, sinks and anything to hold water made out of wood. Not all are round either...Food for thought!

Good Luck,

j

Pro70z28's video post is a wealth of good info!!! Its worth the time...
