I for one was totally knocked out by this video.
I hadn't seen it, and it was like ....YEAH!  Oh this guy is soooo one of 
us.........
Spits on the dowel,.......... damn.
  I am cheering all the way through.   Is this a Galoot or what?
   .........a shave horse, with a backup bib around his neck for the odd 
stuff?
  and making it look so fluid........
     Could you kill him or what?
    The finished bucket was beyond imagination.

It seems most if not all of the wood was fairly soft and he was using 
something very hard (I was thinking boxwood?) with a notch in it, to 
roll down the edge of the bottom.
    He shaved it oversized and then rubbed it down to size with the hard 
block.

    I remember watching Klause hammer a wire into a piece of wood, and 
then plane it back off.
  But when it got wet the compressed wood "remembered", and swelled back 
up to seal.

  I expect it was something like that.
     yours scott
