  • Basket 2019 a Steve Good pattern

    I saw this in his email last week and thought I would make one. I enlarged the pattern by 15% to make the basket just under 6" square and 2 1/2" high. The sides are 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood and the top and bottom from Mahogany. I used FD Polar #5 blades as I stack cut 4 pieces. Finished with spray Shellac. Getting each layer lined up when gluing was the hardest part. Comments welcome.

    I like that size Denny, looks like it would make a great basket for napkins. I may need to give this one a try. As always, looks great and you did a nice job. Thanks for sharing,

      Thanks Melanie. I used that size because I could get eight 6" square pieces out of a 12" x 24" piece of plywood.. I didn't try napkins, but I think it should be larger.

        The plywood mages it look like woven grass. Sandy many many years ago I made these small boxes. To aid the alignment for assembly there were holes drilled through the stack at both ends for a small dowel. That made it real easy to align everything. I made a bunch of them and inlayed the tops. A very inefficient use of wood. But seeing your basket I may have to make some more.Jewelry box rectangular B.jpgbasket.jpg

            I made the round one of Steve’s pattern with the handle. I also enlarged it and cut it out of 3/4 cherry only cutting 3 rings. I then cut the smaller size out of the waste of the larger one. I just can’t sell plywood baskets here. People want the “real” wood so I give them what they want and charge more.

              Betty, I also prefer real wood, but I liked the look of the plywood.
