I made this polygon-shaped (8-sided) bucket for the wife’s kitchen utensils after becoming frustrated with the ceramic pot that she was using for them which had a narrower neck opening at the top. This bucket is made of 3/4” oak. The eight pieces measure 8 1/2” tall by 4” wide, both edges of each piece were cut at 22 1/2 degrees to form the polygon shape when assembled. The bottom is 1/4” ply rabbitted into the bottom. The bucket was given two coats of poly as a finish. The pieces were glued together using a banding clamp, and the corner edges were sanded with my palm sander which makes for smooth corners on all edges. I also hammered V-nails into the top end joints for added securement to the bucket. The oak wood blends very nicely with our oak cupboards. The wife is happy and I’m happy.l
