  • 2 beauties delivered today

    These are my last 2 baskets to be delivered for the year! One is John Nelson's oval basket stretched into a bread basket with only 3 rungs cut and the other is Joan West's stacked ring basket with 3 rungs cut. The wood is air dried cherry and you can see the pinkish hue in the wood. I (translation: hubby) have also been rounding over the top rung both inside and out and the bottom of the basket. It gives a whole new dimension to the basket. The comments have been "soft looking." The baskets felt like glass they were so smooth I even impressed myself!!! Hope you like!!

              hehe nice work, like the idea of making the shallow one as a bread basket. It remains nice to look at but also functional for larger bakes. Nice idea.

                Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

                Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

                Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
                Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
