Similar to my other posts this time with pine and slightly different colors of cedar.

These are CNC cut and assembled using titebond 3. The crate is fully joined using asymmetrical dovetails and rabbets and dados for the bottom. I debated weather to float the bottom to allow for expansion and contraction but I ended up gluing it all. Finish is penofin verde.

Also different from the last time is I made a wood brand from a piece of brass worked out pretty well – propane torch is used to heat it up.

You can now see it on the bike too.

You can find more information on my etsy page:

Very nice basket. I saw the title and it took me a moment to figure out what a bicycle basket was.
I like the simple design.

Those are too cool. I really like the puzzly piece looking joinery. You will have some really happy bike riding customers!
