I can’t thank you enough for these films Houtje. The very same project we are working on. It’s always amazing to see people do these things with such well practiced skills and simple tools.

The film answered a lot of questions and gave some good examples of the work process, such as using the lag knife and final smoothing inside and out after final assembly, but before installing the bands. I had planned to do the same thing on mine.

It appeared that the stave’s were cut directly from a log with a curved iron to give the concave insides. A big time saver.

If you don’t mind, I would like to include this link with a reference to your contribution in one of the ancient bucket blogs just to make sure that people interested in the ancient bucket project will be able to see it. Thanks once again for this wonderful film link and for realizing that it would be of interest to me. I also enjoyed seeing the wheel making process, which is something else I’ve wanted to make for a long time.

Mike,
Of course you can use the link in your project.
I injoy your project very much. And when I saw it I thought it could give you some information.
I love see how you can make beautifull things with less tools.

Dennis if I find the site it I’ll let you know.

Injoy… Houtje

Thanks for posting. I thought that was Mike and his dad working on his lagging bucket project. I’m glad he chimed in and cleared that up for me.

Nice looking dipper bucket they made, and some interesting tools too. Loved the two man planes and that draw knife looked like it could be a samurai sword in its spare time! :)

I will look into this world next week.
Best thoughts and a big thank you,

OK guys, now that we have a piggen, we can go milk some cows. My maternal grand mother had one of those that her great grand father made. I’m guessing that it was made back in the 1830’s or there about.

Houtje, Thank you for this link. Roy Underhill, eat your heart out. lol

Mike thank you for starting this, as it had been most educational. So many of these old arts are lost to us.
