Remember when nails used to be shipped in barrels? Neither do I. But evidently they were.
My wife picked this up for me at an antique store. I was preparing for a lecture and need a bucket with staves as a visual illustration. These are the pics I used for that presentation. I shot it in my backyard as the sun was setting. For some reason, I find B/W shots of wood to be deeply satisfying.
I hope this pic serves you well.
