  • Kentucky Artisan Center

    I stopped in Berea on a recent trip to check out the Artisan Center. My wife pointed out some collapsible baskets/bowls that reminded her of some I had done. A major difference was the baskets were attached to a piece of wood (base) which was larger in circumference than the bowl/basket. I thought after leaving that I should have examined the base to see how it attached. I have the book Collapsible Basket Patterns by the Longabaughs which shows nothing with that kind of base. Has anyone seen a pattern for this kind of bowl/basket?

    Did this thread get hacked? That is a very strange sidetrack from KyivWorkshop.

    It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

    I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...
