    Baby steps

    All right as no one else is posting, i'll go ahead and show a piece that i have no intention of keeping. This is just for pratice and nothin more.
    I saw a pic of a wood basket some where else and wanted to see how hard it will be to figure out. Well as i didn't have a beading tool, i made a quick one out of a old small skew i had laying around. Didn't get it perfect but close enough for now. The maple that i used was kinda dry, but also don't care if it warps. Need a lot more pratice but this is just to see if i could figure out the basics. Thanks and all C&C needed.

    Looks good.

    It looks like a snake charmer's basket they use in South Asia.

    Did you burn the vertical marks?

    If you don't want to keep that piece send it over here Stephen and I'll make good use of it. For being a practice piece I think you did a fine job
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Very clever. I really like the way it resembles a basket, but when you remove the lid, Aha!
