My wife saw these baskets and asked me to purchase the pattern book and try to make these baskets. My first two attempts were unreal and were thrown away. Then I tried again and we now have baskets in our house. They are made of red oak and the stakes are of different colors. I love to use wood that is colorful and then put a clear finish on them. I have used purpleheart, paduk, walnut, and bloodwood. I do not like to paint or put a color stain on wood unless it is absolutely necessary.

Great looking baskets John. Do you have to wet the wood before weaving it?

Welcome to LJ John. As I said at our meeting, I find this to be an incredibly good site. There is a lot to see and a lot to learn. WARNING – spending time on this website can become additive.

And of course, you baskets look great.

Your baskets look great. You should do a blog on how you do these. Thanks for posting.

God Bless

slooper,

The name of the author of the book for the baskets is Monroe Dutcher. The book is The New Scroll Saw Basket Volume I and II. If you go to www.thewinfieldcollection.com I believe you can get a catalogue and then order the books. Sorry for the delay in answering.

John

These books aren’t fo sale anymore. I’ve been trying to get my hands on the first one. Any chance anyone has it with patterns and is willing to sell?

As a fellow basket maker, I appreciate your work. Fortunately, I obtained a copy of Monroe Dutcher’s volume 2 from the Winfield Collection before they ran out. The pattern I am most interested in is the one you show here – a napkin basket. I will gladly pay for a copy of the pattern. Do you have one to sell? I think the original Volume 1 must have contained the pattern. Please, let me know since the volume is no longer available. Thank you, Dan
