is the making of buckets, tubs, churns and other related items
and dates back as far as egyptian times.
Well buckets come with a handle
or "bail", sap buckets come with one longer stave for
hanging if desired. Both are made with old narrow top design
or later wide top. Your choice.
Hoops can be made of white oak
sap wood when ever the material is available.
Old fashioned cold rolled , hand
splayed steel hoops are always available. They hold a vessel
together better. Quite handsome also. Wooden hoops can loosen
up at times and will need to be tapped back down gently to snug
up the vessel.
are made of pine, white cedar or red cedar. I can also make the
" old oaken bucket" in which the staves are made of
white oak. It was a common well bucket in many areas of the world.
