In the 1700’s and early 1800’s a White Cooper traveled from village to village. He used whatever wood was readily available. In Northwest Ohio, that would have been oak. So I’ve made quite a few oak buckets for folks and today I’m finishing up a well bucket.
The wood came from my woods behind our farm.
PS: The third picture was taken this morning on the porch of my shop in the village. Its my Oak Bucket finished and full of water! The rope handle is also done!
