Fun, fun, fun and a shaping challenge!
A very attractive and large "fat bottomed" double-walled basket.
Uses 7/8" FR Spokes, 1/4" FO weavers ,#3 round reed for twining base.
5/8" FO Rim with Common cane for lashing.
See the Leather Staps or Shaker tape and Chicago Screws to make your own handle.
For weavers with intermediate skills in shaping. Must be familiar with twining and basic basketry skills, no illustrations.
Standing 21" at the top of the hand tooled leather handle, this basket uses wide, doubled spokes and both round and flat oval weavers to achieve its curvaceous shape. Perfect to set on the floor or the mantle.
