  • Another one

    The first one went so well I need to make another.
    This one is for a lady and will get a few flowers and butterflies in the center section.
    Made from the same piece of cherry. Had to change the grain direction to make it fit on the 15x6.5" pc.

    I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

      Here's the pattern Tim. I only pinned the four corners. I clamped the pieces together and drilled them by hand (cordless) then cut dowels and secured themwith a drop of super glue on the outside end. You will have to round the pieces a little so the hinge can swing.

        Oh, yeah! I MUST do this! Thanks for the tip on pinning only the upper and lower points - what a cool way to join the panels.

          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.
