That's a real smart design that uses that lip on your bucket, props dude!
I'm liking that design. I want something fast to slip on/off for brush pile type stuff. Also thinking about a bucket modification to allow me to push/move larger quantities of snow. Even as I hope for not too much snow.

I also DIY'd a set of 'clamp on forks'.
BUT
I also made a dedicated pallet that fits my forks 'just right' which comes real handy very often.
I also treated it with wood preservative since it has to live outdoors.

Since we often collect fallen branches the 'pallet' keeps them from dropping out.
I also find it handy when I want to move cut firewood as it sure extends the bucket capacity and saves trips.

Buggs67,

Here's my homemade brush forks I built about 10 years ago along with a jib boom, and a set of bucket teeth.

I used 1/8" x 1" x 2" tubing for the forks, and 3/4" plywood for the platform.

The brush forks are used every spring/summer, and are fastened with 3- 1/4" x 20 grade 8 bolts thru each side of the bucket.

The hinged plywood platform is attached to the top of the brush forks with 2- 1/4" x 20 eye bolts drilled and tapped thru the top of the brush forks.

The vertical wooden headache rack is also attached with 2- 1/4" x 20 eye bolts drilled and tapped thru the top edge of the bucket.

When I want the wooden platform up, I just use a bungee strap to hold it in position.

Hope this gives you more information to help you with your final decision.

KC
