OK...so this isn't about woodturning but I still found it an enjoyable watch.

It's wooden, it's round, I saw it spin around a few times, sooo?

Thanks John, I'll watch the whole video later

That was a nice video. So many of the crafts are being lost.

Agreed

Slightly off topic, a can attest to the fact that a plastic bucket will blow away while a wooden one stays put. Also wooden buckets don't break down and get brittle like plastic ones.

   As cool as it may be to have a wooden bucket I will take my cleaned out plastic drywall mud bucket any day over a wooden one. Sorry for that attitude but nostalgia is good only to a point with me.

Where I live, any plastic bucket (your classic mud bucket) must be black. Any other color becomes brittle and fails. I know this because I tested the theory.

I'm hoping it's "grandfathered" in.  Roll Eyes Grin

In one sense, I'm certainly with Robert. I have probably 40+ 5gal plastic buckets with everything from tools to fertilizer in them, I couldn't get by without them.

I prefer the look and longevity of wooden buckets and certainly appreciate the skill that goes into building one.
I may try to make one, who knows.
