These buckets are watertight and sealed with a marine epoxy which makes them usable as ice buckets. My family has used them for firewood holders, magazine holders, and trash containers. I think they're nice just to display.
In addition, the entire purchase price of this bucket will be donated to St Jude Children's Research Hospital. The donation will be in the buyer's name and the buyer will receive a thank you letter from St Jude as well as my thanks. Note: the purchase is NOT tax deductible for the buyer.
