A ring basket made from 1/4” oak. I learned that I need to be gentle with the spindle sander!

I’ve been playing around with these too, fun projects. I also struggled with how much to sand, the overlaps can be so tiny!

You beat me to it, and looks very nice.

I’ve been using the Flying Dutchman #1 flat end spiral blades. I really like these a lot. I also bought a mini chuck and the super tiny drill bits. These obviously minimize the size of the hole, so much less sanding. I find that I have a tremendous amount of control with the spiral blades. These work best with thinner stock or softer wood. They produce a substantial amount of really fine dust, so be careful with that and plan accordingly.

When using 1/2 – 3/4” oak, the #5 spirals are awesome for hogging out material. They go through that hard oak like a hot knife through butter.

I also have made many of these baskets. Don’t think I would use my spindle sander on them…very easy to break as you know. Great job. What finish did you use?

It’s a very delicate piece of work. You did a fine job on this.
