This is a Basket I made recently, Molesworth-Inspired, with a Horse Saddle Carving on each end, painted black.
This type of basket is FOR SALE
contact me at email: firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information
I built a few extra Baskets as I was working out the design I wanted to donate to a fund raiser coming up soon at my kid’s elementary school. That Donation basket is posted here
Another verison of this basket has been posted here
The End Panels and Bottom are Salvaged antique Pine wood. I believe the Natural Twigs are from Ash Saplings. The Twig End Ties are Raw Cowhide String. The carving is done free hand with a router, and is then hand painted. The top finish is Gold Oak Stain, with a clear Satin Lacquer.
Thanks for looking.
