the making of a basket
the basket i made this summer is a 10" tabletop basket. the mold is shallow, and curved to the top of the mold.
first i drew a circle the size of the base onto curly maple and cut it out on the band saw.next i drilled the middle hole out on the drill press. drilling a little from both sides to prevent chipping out.
last week was the nantucket film festival. it was really really cold. this is the friday night free movie at children's beach. i had to have this photo of the only 5 nuts waiting to see the movie (me included).
last lunch with bobby and karol at something natural, biggest sandwiches in the world, and the best carrot cake :-)
