Ash bucket lid
wood over ashes…

After making the bucket with Mike (Stefang), I thought I needed to make a matching lid for the metal bucket.
Decided to make it a hand tools only project, manly Japanese.
This post is from the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/38878

Pictures:
1. A sweet pair.
2. Making the board.
3. Attempting to saw…
4. Using my home made cutting gauge.
5. Planning for the final design.
6. This is what it is all about.

Wood over ashes, might inspire…

Best thoughts,
Mads

These are really nice. I have just moved to a new place that has an open fire that creates ash so I have added this to my To Do list.
Thanks for posting.

is this the precursor for kicking the bucket, enjoyed the blog, using that saw was not so easy huh, i always love learning how to use a new tool, good project, i need a good metal bucket, right now i let the ashes go totally cold before i put them in my large PVC bucket,,,but one time i took out the ask while there was stll aparently some hot little coals, unbenounced to me, it melted a small hole in the bucket…lol…i was much more careful after that, but still need the metal bucket, so mads, how about doing a blog on making a solid metal bucket :)

Did you learn that technique making shields for the Vikings Mads? Looks great and good hands on experience with the old saw. Just be glad you don’t have to make a living with it! You are getting pretty close to moving back into your shop. Are you planning to make the move before Christmas?

Nice Lids!

The two buckets look like brother and sister setting in front of the fire.

This is on my wish list to Santa.
I have been using a metal coffee can for years. (too small – can’t find metal coffee cans any more)
I would need the one with the handle to make it easier to carry out. The larger size would be great…............

That is just the ticket Mads. It looks like it has always been there. Very nice.

Very rewarding work. Why settle for seconds, even when working on something as simple as a lid? I say, put your heart and soul into it. That’s what you did here.
