This is my redneck version of Kiefer’s Thanksgiving basket. The woods are tiger maple and walnut. Instead of steam-bending the maple, I threw it outside and left it lay in a rainstorm for a day. The maple was a sliver that I had off another project and it was already pretty flimsy so I just had to get it good and wet. Fashioned the handles up and they look nice against the maple. Didn’t have any “Thanksgiving” props, so I used a Christmas tea-towel and homemade jams and chestnuts. It is 8” around and sets 2 3/4” high. The bottom is 3/8” maple. Finished with Howards wax. Thanks for the looks and comments.
