There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza...

...and we know just the man to fix it! Check out this great video of the talented Dan "Five Buckets" Tatum and his coopering skills! Dan just so happens to also be a great volunteer here at the Village. Nice work, Dan!
You can see Dan in action at our upcoming May event! Here's more info:

1-4 p.m.
Experience life before hardware and lumber stores! See the blacksmith hand-forge unique creations, take a turn working wood at the shave horse, and watch trained cooper (barrel/cask/bucket maker) Dan Tatum and members of the Woodturners of North Texas at work. This day is for do-it-yourselfers! Cost is regular Village admission plus a $2 fee to make a wooden mallet to take home.
