This bucket is held together by the tension of the hoops only. No glue, sealants, or nails were used. Traditionally coopered buckets like this one need to stay dry all the time or wet all the time. Exposure to varied humidity extremes will cause the wood to shink/expand causing the bucket to fall apart.
