Remember also that the earliest examples of buckets would have been made of hide, intestine or some other animal material that would need to be sewed to make water-tight. One seam is best. Of course, if they use a stomach or length of intestine with a knot in it, no sewing is necessary. All of this would be done well before the smelting of metals for hoops and nails.
