Here is the continuation of making my 18th century fire bucket in Glunn Klass. When I left off, I had just pounded the mould into the sewn leather that will be my bucket. And now here are the next steps...
1.) Trim the edges that are around the mould.
2.) Mark where the stitching on the edges will be.
3.) Take your best Thor hammer and pound the hell out of that mould until it's out from the bucket.
4.) Mark and drill the holes around what will be the bottom of the bucket.
5.) Glue a strip of leather around the interior of the bottom edge.
6.) Once the glue is dry, take a drill and put it through the original holes and into the inner strip.
7.) Using a saddle stitch, stitch in what will be the bottom of the bucket.
8.) Trim off the edges and you are on your way to the next step...which I will show you at another time. :)
