The bucket can be used to collect water from a water source. The water can then be

  • stored in the bucket
  • transferred to another container, for example to barrels to be used in leather working
  • used in crafting, for example to make dough from flour in bread making.

Also infinite water can be created by collecting water in the wooden bucket and placing the water from that bucket using control and right-click.

Examples are shown in the image to the right. The lower single block shows a created water source that can be placed indoors or outdoors as a source of water e.g for panning. The upper water filled trench in the image can be used to create irrigation channels for farming or a moat.
