I use the term “basket” loosely, but it’s a project you can crank out in a couple hours. Plenty of time before Easter.

Cool video as usual and NICE SAVE!!!! (High fives all around!) I was wondering somewhere around the 4 min mark how you were going to pull this one off, but you didn’t let us down.

Love the tip, too! With all the popularity of “rustic” stuff these days, it really gives you a lot of ‘artistic license’ if things don’t come out exactly as envisioned. ;)

Have a great weekend, Steve. Your avitar is a riot! (May you find all the Easter eggs you hide before they rot!)

Thanks for the smiles! Sheila :D

These simple holiday projects are often cherished by the young ones for a long time, and they don’t forget them either. The colors are terrific too. Good work Steve.

I hope you didn’t steal this from Ted. You can always get me to laugh with your videos. I now realize why my wife keeps calling me “rustic”. Thanks -Don

...steal them from Ted?!? I think the real task is to make sure Ted doesn’t steal them from Steve!!!!

Good Luck!

Hi, Steve,
Enjoyed the Easter basket video, but I really enjoyed your new profile picture…. you are morphing into TED.
I think Ted looks like he could be Norm’s evil twin in a parallel woodworking world.

Nice basket Steve. Now this is a great project that I will use to lure my grandson into a bit of wood working. Good one, as usual.
