I’ve been wanting to make up a waste basket but could not find one I liked. Plus I can see that this wood be a great gift as well. Thanks for sharing your design. What is the size of the basket? It appears to have straight side or are they angled a bit?

This is a very nice piece. I am sure that you wife appreciates far more than if you had simply bought her something for Christmas (unless you were also considering a pair of diamond earrings).
How did you finish it?

Nice job. What did you use for the bottom? I have seen these around and want to build one, so it is on my list.

Very nice, and a nice addition to a room of great stuff. Really nice with the A&C lamp.And as I am wrapping challenged, the plane curlings are a great touch I’ll be lifting. Thanks!

The bottom is walnut as well.There is a cleat inside about an inch from the floor that it is attached to.
