  • 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.

                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
