This is my second attempt at a “basket illusion” turning. Made from maple; approximately 10 1/2” in diameter. After the beads were turned, I burned the lines, and then colored in the pattern with ink markers.

That is incredible. It’s way to intense for me to try.

So very beautiful. These basket looking turnings are some of my favorite. If I was a turner, this is what I would want to learn to do. Do you use a beading tool?

Paul; yes, it’s a 3/16” beading tool from D-Way Tools.

That, (stealing previous comments) is amazing work!
It almost looks as if it was woven, not turned.
