A bucket is a water container required in carpentry.



The bucket can be used to carry up to 25 units of water. To fill a bucket with water, simply right-click the water source and select "Fill Bucket", consuming the bucket and producing a bucket of water. If the source is considered unclean, the water in the bucket will be tainted and displayed with a green skull icon (SkullPoison.png). Leaving the bucket on the ground outside while it is raining, will gradually fill it with tainted water.


The bucket can be used with water and plaster powder to produce a bucket of plaster, which can be applied to a built wall, allowing it to be painted. A bucket of plaster can be filled with water, which will remove the plaster.
