I happened by this video today. Ruedi Kohler makes a bucket. Doesn’t sound too appealing, but it’s one of the best craftsman videos I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen more than a few). He was an 87 year old Swiss cooper when it was recorded in 1992 and he makes a curved wooden milking bucket entirely from wood (including the banding).

Inspired me to have a go at something simpler...

It involved this much maths to work the angles out...

Thanks for reminding me of this, it came up on my recommended videos and I meant to watch, but forgot. Especially as I’m from Smethwick originally.
