Very nice, I made some quite similar, but with different handles.

I made the handles by cutting 1/8 strips of wood and bending them around a jig one at a time with glue. So the handle is basically about 8 strips laminated together

Nice baskets, but I really like the view out of your shop window. How about adding some pictures of your shop?

How do you get any work done having those picture windows to look out?

I live in Colorado, so I’m used to the mountains, but if I had that view from my shop…I would have a hard time getting anything done.

Nice Baskets.
