Mafe’s wood bucket
Mikes ancient bucket class
I have finally done it!
My bucket is completed.
Quite some time ago our friend Mike asked if anyone wanted to participate in a building an ancient bucket class, I turned in and was fast hooked. To do this with Mike has for me been a process of learning, I made my first hand plane, some tools and discovered old ways of doing things, but Mike learned me more than that he learned me patience, to wait and to listen, to even enjoy that things had to take time and for these I will always be grateful.
Also I made a close connection with Mike, and this I will keep in my heart as a sweet memory, for a while I felt like a son trying to copy the fathers way to be, but slowly I felt it like a friendship.
So thank you Mike and the others that was on this ancient bucket class, I enjoyed every moment, and will look forward to see more bucket become reality.
Here is my bucket!
Ok I have to admit it was not water tight, in fact it was not water tight at all.
The bindings are too loose, but since I don’t plan to use it for water, and I like them as they are, I will keep them for now.
1. The bucket.
3. Water world…
4. Using the plane made for the bucket.
5. Pallet wood set up to become a bucket.
6. One day at the time.
So my dear Mike I did it!
Slowly at the end, but I did it.
Hope you can forgive my water world, as I have told you it was a pleasure to make this journey in our past, to get a little closer to my inner Viking, study, make experiments, create theories, do, be, laugh and at the end be able to say I did it.
Thank you Mike.
