How-To #2: Bucket Chair

1113 days ago by dakremer | 20 comments »

Hey Guys. This is something I thought of today (on my day off) and built within a couple of hours. I didnt use any plans….just an idea in my head. I am going fishing tomorrow and needed somewhere to keep my fish and sit, so decided why not do both at once. I used all scrap pine wood – 1X4’s and 2X4’s (I ran out towards the end and had to finish up with OSB). It sits pretty comfortable, and the height is perfect! Its definitely not going to win any fine wood ...

Making an ancient bucket MaFe #12: Finale - there is a hole in my bucket!

1184 days ago by mafe | 19 comments »

Finale there is a hole in my bucket! Ta-taaaaaaaa… Plingeling… Swirrrrmmm… oooooopen. Closer. Even closer. Ready, steady - GO!!!UPS!!! If I should pick up water in this bucket, I should be running.Ok it did not hold water, just as I expected. The bottom is perfect and the fit to the sides seems also perfect.But my bindings are too loose, and the bucket should be soaked with water before the try.So why did I do it?I like my bindings and I will not u...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #4: Tools complete

1251 days ago by daltxguy | 6 comments »

Finally back to the shop to finish off the final bits of the plane. I am following Mike's ( stefang) master class on a medieval bucket If you recall, the plane is being created in order to plane the inside of the staves to the curvature of the bucket. As well we need a ‘binding lever’ which will be used to install the willow band around the bucket once completed. Ive chose to pass on the lagging knife. There appear to be other methods available. i might regret this but f...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #2: Plane body glue up

1258 days ago by daltxguy | 10 comments »

Some more progress on my plane, which will be used to curve the inside of the staves to form a bucket. I am following stefang's master class on making a bucket using traditional methods I left off here last time Next to make was the crosspin. I chose to make a wooden pin. I don’t have any plug cutters so I did this on my rusty lathe ( forced to sit outside but under cover for space reasons). I sized the middle part to fit inside the plane less 1/16” so it wouldn’t ...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #1: DIY convex plane - so far

1265 days ago by daltxguy | 6 comments »

I am following Stefang’s master class on building a Nordic bucket using the medieval ways The first steps are to make the tools required to make the bucket. The most important tool is a plane to curve the inside of the staves of the the bucket and in true medieval fashion, this is being done with largely hand tools ( ok, and a bandsaw from well into the future). This blog series is to show my progress of the master class. Anyone can follow along and jump in any time to his c...

Making an ancient bucket MaFe #5: The bucket - making the boards

1266 days ago by mafe | 18 comments »

The bucketmaking the boards. Once again I will try to go my way, sorry Mike I’m a pain in the bucket… I will make the stafs different width, and set up the angels by eye, and not by math. Here is the PDF I made to show the principal. This because it is my guess that it was done like this in the old days. Stafs cut up in different width, now ready to plane with the new convex hand plane.Before I could start I had to adjust the plane, the mouth was simply to narrow, a...
