Buckets are made of wood at a carpenter's workshop or metal at a metalsmith's forge or magma forge. They are used by dwarves to carry water, when making lye, milking animals and for cleaning wounded dwarves. Milk and lye can also be stored in buckets, but dwarves will prefer to empty the buckets into suitable barrels. A bucket is also needed for the construction of a well, a soap maker's workshop, an ashery or a dyer's shop. To make a bucket, push and highlight the carpenter's workshop. Then push to add a new task, and push to make a wooden bucket. A suitable dwarf will fulfill your request when he has time.
They are stored on the furniture stockpile.
Metal buckets are unique in that they are the only blacksmithable item that uses 1 bar. This makes them useful for training blacksmiths, as the buckets can be melted down for a single bar, and training can occur even when metals are scarce.
