I got a good laugh at myself with this project. It was supposed to be based on the idea of Diggerjacks design.

Well, when I got the rings cut out and started to stack them I quickly realized that it was not working at all. Went back and looked at the design of Diggerjacks, then looked at mine again. I was stumped. Then after a cup of coffee and puttering around a bit, I took another look.

Well, I’ll be danged, that’s what’s wrong!! Diggerjacks design has about 5 times the number of points on each ring that mine does. Oh well, just arrange them in a semi-random fashion till I got a look I liked and glued the bits together. Then 5 coats of spray lacquer and it was finished.

This one is purple heart, black walnut, cedar, and pine.

It’s Definitely a basket…...or maybe a bowl? Nice work either way.

If you hadn’t said anything no one would know it wasn’t on purpose! Very cool design
