2 - 2x4 @ 8 feet long or stud length (92-5/8")
12 - 2-1/2" pocket hole screws or 3" self tapping deck screws
1 - 24" round galvanized bucket (plans can be altered for a different sized bucket but would NOT recommend going larger in size)
4 - 2x4 @ 27" - legs
1 - 2x4 @ 24" - long cross piece
2 - 2x4 @ 11-1/4" - short cross pieces
Drill two 1-1/2" pocket holes on each end of all three cross pieces. Attach the smaller cross pieces to the larger one at the center with 2-1/2" pocket hole screws and exterior wood glue.
If using deck screws, you will need to drive screws in at an angle. Predrilling may help prevent splitting.
Attach cross piece to the legs, centering ends on leg insides. If using deck screws, attach screws from outside.
