Well I started getting the wood ready. and I now needed to cut the core out of the center section.
The core then had the bottom cut off and i cut off two quarter sections from the top leaving a small piece in the middle.
I then cut the core out of the middle section.
From the top of the second core I cut a small piece off that was then glued back into the piece it was cut from originally.
The top section of the handle and the bottom was glued on.
And so now the basket was complete.
I then glued the main block shut where the bandsaw blade cut it apart.
I now glued the bottom on the main box.
I cut two small pieces off of the quarter cuts that I had made from the center core.
They were glued to the lid to allign it with the block of wood.
Finish was applied and the box is complete. I used shellac, put on as a French polish.
Now to post it as the project.
