This is a Hamper that has an Oak frame and lid with Rattan webbing . We had a one simular this as size goes but it was made of plastic frame and woven plastic around the sides and it lasted for 20 years . But were no longer made so my wifes uncle told me to make a frame to keep it in upright position and put a very thin groove at the bottom to put the rattan uprights in and bend them up 7/8 in. and go around with the 5/8 in. . Now with this it should last the rest of our lives . Gene

Gene you did a great job. Years back I toured a basket company and was impressed with the skill of the basket makers. Well done.
