This is the second version of my Bucket Chair. Made two of them for Christmas presents. If you want to see my first version click here (lumberjock link). I did not make a video of this new version, but if you’d like to see the how-to video of the previous version and see it in action then click here (Lumberjock Link). I made some modifications on this one and I simplified the bottom (that fits into the bucket). I also used some different joinery. If you have any questions let me know – hopefully the pictures posted below will help you figure out how to build one! If you can’t see the measurements on those pictures let me know – I can draw up some plans and post them if enough people are interested!! enjoy!

You know…If you made the seat portion of this chair hinged as well if would add even more utility for those long fishing days…

haha – thats exactly what someone said in the comments of my last version! This could definitely be modified to be turned into a pooping chair! :) Just need to cut a hole in the bottom! I designed this one with the idea of sitting on top of the bucket of fish you catch (ice fishing, etc). In those small fishing huts there isnt much space. This is a place to store your fish you caught AND a spot to sit. Two birds with one stone.

You sure its Rick and not ….

Nice project Doug … i think its a darn useful item. I certainly could have used this many a times to spare my butt from that craggy old rock we used to sit on. Cant i get a cup holder and a rod holder on an upgraded version?

Happy holidays bro.

I love the concept a design of the chair but the only question i have is how well does it balance when sitting in it and resting yourt back against the seat … does it feel like it wants to tip over?....

I have a seat on a five gallon bucket just like that in my workshop! Guess what I use it for…
