Certificate of achievement
believe it or not!

I had a wonderful mail today from LJ Debbie, it was not just a chit chat but an official certificate of achievement for my participation in the class of making an ancient bucket with our wonderful Mike.


Here it is.


And here the bucket.

I’m really touched and give all the credit to Mike who gave me this wonderful time on the bucket class.
Thank you Mike.

All the best of my thoughts,
thank you to all the followed us on this wonderful tour and LJ for the fine Certificate,
Mads

Heh, good times with good folks :)

Did you use your bucket to plant flowers since you finished it? would look great.

Cheers :)

Congratulations on the fine certificate. I think the frame should match that wonderful bucket. Maybe Maple with a couple of inlays to match the lid and the bindings.

Hi Mads, congratulation on your achievement.

I know it would be easier a squared bucket.

But you my friend, always exploring the limits. :-))

BTW, this site never ends to surprise me.

Congratulations Mads and thank you for joining me in this adventure to explore the ancient world and to pay homage to our clever woodworker ancestors. We also made some useful tools, learned some new skills, had a great dialog and most importantly some fun.

I too have received a similar certificate from Debbie which shows me as the instructor. This might make you think that I already had the skills to make an ancient bucket, but in fact I only had a book about how to it. So in fact, I was actually a student like all the participants and a conveyor of the information. We really owe our thanks to the Norwegian author of the book, Johann Hopstad who has given a number of courses on the subject in the U.S.A. in the past.

Some of the participants aren’t yet finished with their buckets, but we didn’t set a deadline or any other rules, leaving each participant free to interpret the build in their own way. I feel this is in the spirit of the ancient makers who contributed to the evolution of this type of construction. So in the meantime my certificate and finished bucket is pictured below just to show that while enjoying the same experience and basic methods, we still were able to express our own desires for the finished projects.

And lastly thanks to Debbie for recognizing our efforts.
