Default busy in shop!

I have been making boxes and baskets - still. All of these will go to special people.

I tried a slightly different design. I made 8-sided baskets with 1" wide pieces in the corners, but without splines. I like the way the grain pattern just flows on around the basket. I made several others. The box with candy with it I made for my wife for our anniversary. I generally make a couple baskets or boxes each day.

I say this every time there are boxes posted.....I really need to make some boxes for my grand kids. They range from 8 to 16 and would enjoy their own home made boxes to store their small treasures. Where is that book........Great job as always Malcolm.

Malcolm, Do you use birdsmouth router bits for the corners on the baskets?

Woodworking is like wetting myself...Only I know that warm feeling!

Malcolm, those are really nice. Filling the boxes with candy, chocolates, little treasures makes a great present for a kid or adult. I realy like the knobs for handles.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Beautiful pieces. I really like the basket design and the wood is just spectacular.
