Stand that holds a bucket or flower pot or anything else that is about 10.5 inches and tapered.
I originally made this hold a bucket with poultry water nipples in the bottom to water my chickens. Once it was made the Maslow community helped me see many other uses for it:
* Bucket to hold your favorite libation on ice (beer, soda, water, you name it...)
* Flower pots
* Throw some small casters on it (now you got wheels baby!)
* Edit this page and add more!
The bucket came from the local super market bakery, it is a 3 gallon bucket that originally held frosting.

This was made for 3/4 inch or 23/32 inch CDX plywood. All the files below where recreated assuming 3/4 inch plywood and cutting with a 1/4 inch bit.
About the Files:
Can brought into MakerCam for tool paths at 96 dpi.
DXF export from OnShape
DXF export from OnShape of individual parts. If not using OnShape, this is probably the best place to start if you need to modify the size.
These are 3 files setup to cut the top ring, bottom ring, and 3 legs. These files were setup for 23/32 (3/4) inch stock to be cut with a 1/4 inch bit.
The Top Ring is setup with an inside diameter of 10.5 inches, so make sure your bucket will fit that. The pockets in the bottom ring are oversized for 23/32" stock so you may have gaps.
The bucket came from the local super market bakery, it is a 3 gallon bucket that originally held frosting. Bakeries sometimes give these buckets and lids away or only charge a couple of dollars for them.
The chickens are able to drink from the bucket by using screw in poultry feaders like these from amazon
