This Waste basket is the 5th piece in my A & C Stickley style Bedroom furniture line. It was conceived by the need to use-up some of the ever growing pile of QSWO scraps that seemed to be taking over my limited storage space for such items and I can’t bring myself to just relegate them to kindling. Mainly I was looking to use the piece with the crotch/knot. I sliced and book matched it enough to give me the front and back panels. Planning the thin panels made it even more clear to me that I really should upgrade to a shelix cutterhead, there was some tear-out on the last pass, oh well, to thin now to fully them sand-out, so I left them, after all it’s a waste basket.
I did a quick lJ search, finding a waste basket in A & C style. Reading the comments it was mentioned that a copper lining or basket would look great. Perfect, now I’ve got a use for the extra copper flashing that I had leftover from a resto project some years ago. The copper was already nicely aged, so I left it. Not my best copper solder work and ideally I should’ve used copper rivets, maybe even polished it first but I wanted to keep this piece using what I had on-hand without having to purchase any materials. Alas I will have to buy some copper tacks to tack the liner in place.
Thanks for looking!
