This basket is 17.5×12.25×4.5. It’s the same pattern as the oak basket that has a lap frame. I hope the glue up will provide the necessary strength for a long lasting basket. Thanks for looking at my work – it’s encouraging.

Great looking basket and looks very functional. Did you rip thin strips for weaving the sides or did you cut the bands? I would like to hear your process for making the basket.

Great build on the basket. Easter won’t be the same. Nice work.

This is a pattern from Monroe Dutcher – “The New Scroll Saw Basket” book volume 2. He does an excellent job of laying out the process and the patterns were included. I copied the originals and use the copies to preserve the originals. This particular basket is cut at 11 degrees. You actually cut into each round and glue it back together. The layers are stacked alternating end to end which provides the weave effect. The stakes are ripped using a table saw with a zero clearance table insert. You insert the stakes and trim. I use linseed oil as a finish, then apply a coat of Howards Feed and Wax which makes the basket safe for food applications.

Currently the copies of Monroe Dutcher’s books are unavailable. I have been trying to obtain a copy of volume one. I have search the internet, but came up with zero results – very disappointing. It would be a shame to lose the opportunity make such nice baskets for the Easter Bunny.

I appreciate the compliments – thanks again.

Beautiful basket. I have both volumes but have not tried to make anything out of them yet.

Thanks for the explanation. I will join you in the search for the books. I use to do quite a bit of scroll sawing myself. Keep up the nice look work on those baskets and bowls.
