I turned a similar wedding basket illusïon a couple years ago as an auction item for my turning club. This one is somewhat smaller at only 12½ inches in diameter. This one will be in the SWAT 2-for-1 drawing next month. The wood is maple and if my memory is correct it has 58 rows of ⅛ inch beads. I used pyrography to create the illusion of a coiled basket and then used Copic ink pens to color the design.
Here is my latest basket illusion piece. It is a 14½ inch diameter Navajo style wedding basket. The wood is maple that has been beaded and then woodburning pens were used to create the woven basket illusion. Copic ink pens were used to color the pattern which is the classic Navajo wedding basket design.
Just picked myself some new to me edge treatment planes and I need to gloat. All 16 planes (in not even sure of all the cutting styles yet) for $5 each. Now I have to do some research as to how to best clean these up and return them to service

Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use. This is a fun project for old timey waste baskets. It's been a long time since I have seen the joints joined by thong leather or rope, very cool! Have fun!

Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
