Introduction: Half Bucket

About: Name's Chris. I enjoy taking things apart, modifying and sometimes putting them back together. Like many people here, also have a passion for finding new ways to do things, mostly out of things that others w...

I came up with this simple solution to keep my tools organized, and off the floor while on a scissor lift. I found it more convenient than a full size bucket, do to space limitations, and portability.

Step 1: Things That You Will Need.

Materials:

Bucket
Plywood
Metal flat bar (anything that will can be made to a hook)
Screws
Plastic hanger strap

Tools:

Saw
Knife
Drill

Step 2: Cutting

Split the bucket in half for reference. Make another line past the handle holder, That's where it's getting the cut. I used a combination of a knife, and a coping saw to cut the bucket.

Step 3: Assembly

Trace the bigger portion of your bucket on to the plywood. Cut it out, and screw it on to your bucket. I added  plastic hanger strap along the top of the rim for extra support. Bend the metal bar in to a desired hook and screw it on to the plywood.
