These baskets are from a Monroe Dutcher Bread Basket pattern. They measure 9×12. I cut two baskets; one maple and one walnut. I mixed every other layer. The stakes are Purple Heart and maple. I finished them with linseed oil and Howard’s Feed and Wax. Thanks for looking.

Both are very beautiful. Great competition for the Longaberger Company!

I always like the pairing of maple and walnut. Very fine work.
