  • Another b - basket

    Wanted to share one of the other b's I made. I love making the collapsible baskets!! These also were for baby gifts. There have been a lot of new babies this year!! Made from the book "Multi-Use Collapsible Basket Patterns" by Rick and Karne Longabaugh.

    This one is for a friend. Made from a beautiful piece of Ash. This Ash had the most interesting grain pattern!!

    And this is my favorite. I made this one for my niece. Made from some curley maple.

    Those baskets are REALLY nice Cathy. I've never seen anything quite like those. Thanks for sharing. I also like the last one the most. Awesome grain patterns.

    Keep 'em coming.

            Wild shot trying to find pattern
            by Teacher
            My son is getting married and my wife fell in love with a pattern named "Sylvia's wedding cross". Apparently that design was done by a person who is no longer on this forum and it is rather an old one as far as I can tell through searching. From posts I have searched several have made it....

            My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...
