My Hughes was a Confederate only use Cannon. I am sure they also used standard Buckets like the North also though.


Anyone know of a Confederate Bucket photo, let me know..Thanks

I used the drawing from Antique Ordnance Publishers.

Decided to go with the 4.5 inch diameter pipe.


Just about done, well with the lid anyway. Made that on my old Shopsmith Lathe. Will make the latching mechanism on the bottom when I get the top in the bucket.


Just going with Hardware store stuff for the chains and eyelet and such.

Micheal, spent about 5 Hours today on the Bucket Project. I need to get chain yet and put it on. Any suggestions for Chain? I will likely just go to the Farm Store and get some I think looks decent..


I will post more pics when it is done, And will take them out in the daylight outdoors. My Camera stinks, but it is even worse when indoors. Here is one pic for now.


Since you were kinda my Mentor on this project, I hope I am not disaapointing you too much


I think it will look decent. It is 4.5 Diameter. And the Main Bucket is about 6.5 tall. Overall Height with handle up is around 11.5 tall.


Thanks for the help so far. I do appreciate you taking the time to help.


When it is all done. In addition to pics, I will explain a little on how I assembled it too.


My methods are kinda interesting sometimes,LOL


There are maybe two things I may revisit later on. I may make the wood lid a little larger diameter. And bend the two hook ends on the Handle a little sharper. Both easy adjustments.

I think it looks great!
Just get some chain that doesn't look too modern.

These are the best Chains I could find locally around here.


Hope these Photos are a little better than the others..It is done enough to my satisfaction I think.
