This how-to DVD will guide you through the construction of an
historically authentic wooden bucket, explaining the terms and
tools used as the DVD progresses. The DVD is keyed to the steps
in the book so you can read the book and watch the same steps
on the DVD. The DVD also includes some extra information about
tools and multiple methods of doing some of the steps. This is
a 64 minute DVD (NTSC format). A great companion to the book by
the same name.
