Hi everyone. Here’s some pictures of a knitting basket I made for my wife. It’s made from cherry and finished with linseed oil and wax. My main inspiration was to practice cutting dovetails. The dividers are set with machine cut sliding dovetails. It was a fun project and only took about 10 hours (in one-to-two hour blocks) to complete.
