This is really a fruit basket not Rubic’s Cube. However wend looking at all the individual parts is seems that it may be from Mr. Rubic. However it is a Shelia Landry pattern and as I followed the instructions it really fell together nicely.

This item will be placed in The Crafter’s Co-op, where I sell all most all of my items. The basket really looks best two toned to show off the design and all of the pieces.

Still need a little more finish coat but thanks for looking.

It looks great Jerrell! Keith designed that series of baskets and each one is rather unique. They are tricky to put together sometimes, but they look pretty cool when they are done. You did a beautiful job on this one. I love the contrasting woods! :)

Very nice looking bowl, the contrasting color on the wood helps to emphasize it shape. You are getting
real good and staying inside the lines, now I suppose like all woodworkers you have a good reason to buy,
just a few more clamps. Thank you for sharing this great rendition of of Keith and Sheila’s designs.

It’s really a very nice project and you did a fine job on it. Sheila is a fine artist and crafts person.
