That is a really nice basket, I see you are an expert with carving tools. Beautiful Job. Do you have any pictures of you carving the weave, they would be great to see. Thank you for sharing.

Big Iron, what a nice job of carving. I especially like the way the curved section intersects with the woven section to set both textures apart. It took a good deal of patience to carve the sides. Am I correct that you didn’t texture the ends? I can’t tell for sure since they weren’t really shown much in your photos. This project really has a classic feel and shape to it. It could have been made a century ago. I envy you your skills in carving and hand tools. Thanks for sharing this with us.

I like that pattern on sides and the idea with rope.

I just did the sides, not the ends.

Have your say...
