He also whittled the spouts, so they had a doohickey (technical term) on top to hold the bucket at a bit of an angle so it was a bit quicker to pour the sap into the big buckets he carried on either end of a yoke. Wish I could draw a thumbnail sketch on e-mail. This is the only type of usage I ever heard, as opposed to the broader container definitions others are posting from DARE research.
