This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the iron badge in round wood woodworking.

This BB is for making a wooden trough out of a log.

A dug-out trough made in a similar manner to a dugout canoe is made from a single whole or split log. It can be flat bottomed or raised off the ground on pegs to prevent rot.

A basic roughed out version.

Dough bowls are made with similar methods. Since the previous video didn't show how to refine the interior, here's more.

Minimum requirements:
 - Holds at least 30 gallons of water
 - Minimal leakage

To get certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:
- Your chunks of wood that you are starting with
- Progress about halfway through, with the hand tools you have decided to use for this
- The final product holding 30 gallons of water
- The water level marked initially and 24 hours later showing less than 1/4" of water level drop
You ought to ventilate your mind and let the cobwebs out of it. Use this cup to catch the tiny ads:
