This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Dimensional Lumber Woodworking.

Ok, the zombies have come and gone.  The plumbing doesn't work.  But there's a river nearby.  How to get water from the river to our kitchen?  I know, let's build a bucket!

Here's a rough and tumble bucket:

And here's a cool video of a real cooper:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - at least 3 gallons
  - no glue
  - with handle
  - almost water tight (or better)

To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
- the wood you're starting with
- the construction partially underway
- the finished bucket filled with water
- the finished bucket 2 minutes later showing how much water has leaked out

I am displeased. You are no longer allowed to read this tiny ad:
