Made these garden hods (baskets) out of leftover cherry pieces that were mostly sapwood. I thought my Mom would like them for Christmas for harvesting and washing fresh veggies from the garden

You are absolutely right. Your Mom truly loved the basket. It is finished beautifully and made really well. Until spring comes, she is going to use it as a magazine rack. Nice job!

Very nice baskets made from scrap. Your mom will like them very much. What are the dimensions?

They are about 22” long. If I did it again, I’d make them a little smaller and perhaps have the handles go in the other direction. Nice thing is, they don’t take very long to make.

These are very nice. Well done. OTOH – I agree with your idea that maybe they should be a little smaller with the handles running in the other direction.

If I were to make these, I would make the handles pivot and I would make the bodies stackable so they would take up less storage space.

I really like the stackable idea. I wonder how we could do it. My wife wants some of these. I’d like to make some improvements and make some more. I think 18” would be more than enough for zucchini and tomatoes.
