Antique Bucket

I have a wooden bucket that has been in my family for over 60 years. It is made in the same manner as a wooden barrel in that it has vertical pieces of wood with lap joints making up the sides and the same for the bottom. There is a metal pail with a wood handle on it. It has dried out to the point that each joint, sides & bottom are loose (totally) and the two metal hoops are also loose. It is still together.I would like to restore this antique, but don't know the proper procedure t do so. It si 5 inches high, 7 inches in diameter at the top. 2 or 3 of the wooden pieces that make up the sides have some splintering inside. I don't know what type of wood it is made of as it is bleached out, but suspect it may be oak.

Suggestions?
