I’ve been playing around with doing this.I believe you decide how many slats you want and divide 180 by the number.The trick is to be sure the wide side of each piece is exactly the same.Of course, that is for vertical sides. The tapered sides still elude me.Still working on how to hold everything together during glue up.Nice work.

Great job. Not sure I could figure out the math on this project. Would be interesting to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments guys, it’s really simple to build. Tapered buckets are alittle more complicated. The easiest Way to hold them together is laying them face down on Some good duct tape. Then simply put glue and the tape Holds everything together.

For a 12 inch bucket the staves are 3 1/2 inches wide and the angle is 15 degreesFor a 24 inch bucket it’s 1 1/2 inch staves and the angle is 5 degrees, and they are 12 staves for 12 inch bucket, and 32 for a 24 inch bucket
