This is made from 1/2” Walnut. The basket itself is cut from one solid piece of wood, then stacked and the weavers are about 1/16” thick, woven through the pieces. These always look great when completed!

This is really an awesome project, Leldon! I always marveled at how these baskets could be so strong once together. I love the walnut too – one of my favorite woods. :)

Great looking basket, first one like this I can remember seeing. Do you glue or otherwise fasten the woven
strips, and how do you tie the bottom in? Thank you for sharing.

this is a wonderful piece you have made, and i think i would enjoy id even more if you could add more pictures of the bottom , the inside, and a few brighter pictures then this one..its pretty dark, and you would do yourself a big favor by trying to improve the pictures here…just my 2 cents, a project this beautiful deserves to be seen better…grizz

thanks! I will have to make another one another one and take progress pictures. The strips are glued to the top rim on this one. The weavers fitnso tight I didn’t have to glue it. Even if I tried too, the glue would had got pushed away! I will take better pictures of the next one, which should be made soon. I am a scroller, not a photographer though :)

hey there leldon, i know your a wood workers, but since your displaying your work on line for others to see, they to truly showcase your work and for us to be able to clearly see what you made and how you made it, we really need to train ourselves to take good quality pictures, i was taught this from a good friend i made here on the site who knew my work was good, but could not see it very well because my pictures were not very good and the lighting was bad…so i had my wife buy a photo box at the craft store, its just a three piece white foam thing that you can easily set up..put a few lights on the edges and put your project in there…with the white back ground and the added light…it really changes my pictures and shows my work much better…ask sheila about it, she can help you also…im just trying to help you out…grizz
