Rice farmers and traders once used these stackable, heavy teak buckets to measure and store rice. The handle across the center is fixed and each piece has unique, original iron details. Original markings/stamps are also imprinted into the wood and vary piece by piece. This is piece is probably more than 50 years old.
WHAT DID I DO TO IT?
I sanded it down and applied a coat of colored, low-voc furniture paint. Then, I washed and sanded it down and applied my mom’s all-natural wood wax to finish it off (Sabu-Sabu).
