    I read somewhere on here the other day where someone wanted to see pics of one. I just cut the bottom off then split the upper half of the buckey and remove about 4" of the body. I then bend it to where its about 4" smaller than the base. You can see the seam where its screwed together. I then put a 2"x2" block inside the bottom of the body and attach with screws. Then just screw the bottom on by shooting a few screws thru the bottom into the 2"x2" block. Works very well and heavy duty. Free to:lol:
