A friend of mine, and now a customer, saw this Classic Rebecca basket on my FaceBook Scrollsaw page. She said that she wanted one but ask an interesting question. That being, “can you make it bigger”. After some discussion she said she wanted it TWICE the normal size. I put an E-Mail in to Keith, at Shelia Landry Designs, and got an immediate reply and great support. Thanks Keith. He said make sure you measure and cut. That is check every piece before you cut it which proved invaluable,

The basket is made out of ¾ Walnut for the top ring and bottom and ¾ Maple for the slats. It measures 22 ¼ inches by 22 ¼ inches by 8 ¼ inches tall. I ask her several times if it would fit on her dining room table and she said, “O yes it will fit fine”. Plus she is a photographer and I am sure that a few babies will be placed in it.

It has two coats of Tung Oil at present and could get some more.

Thanks for looking.

Wow, Jerrell! You really did an outstanding job on this! I wasn’t sure if it would look good super-sized but it really looks beautiful! :) Cool!

That’s a very beautiful basket. You did an awesome job. I believe your customer had the right idea to make it double size.
