  • 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.

                Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

                There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

                As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

                I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...
