This fretwork basket will give you some practice in stack cutting. The ends and sides can be stack cut to save time. The one pictured was cut from 1/8" thick maple. I also included a pattern that is twice the size you can cut from 1/4" thick stock. I did not test cut the large basket. You might have to taper the bottom edge of the side pieces to get a good fit with the bottom. The small basket 5 1/2" long and 4 3/4" tall.
The construction is slot and tab so it goes together easy with no complicated clamping. It's best to cut the slots slightly under size and file them for a snug fit.

Bob Calhoun, is a man I have never met in person. Even though we have never stood face to face I feel like he is a personal friend. Bob lives in Australia and has been a reader and contributor to my blog almost from the beginning. Bob is one of those guys that has the ability to make anything he sets his mind to.
A few months ago Bob started working on intarsia portraits. He had sent me a couple pictures of his work and they were very well done. I guess he took the hint when I told him how much I liked them because before I knew it he was doing my portrait. He actually made two. He sent me a picture of the first one and I loved it. Being the perfectionist he is he decided to start over and make it better. And he did.
Well to make a long story short and after a mix up with the post office I received my portrait all the way from Australia today. There are a few gifts you receive in your life that you never forget. I remember my dad buying me a horse for Christmas when I was young. My mom and younger brother made me a chess set one year for Christmas that brought me to tears. My wife gave me a beautiful baby girl. All those are gifts that I will remember because they were so special and full of personal meaning.
Obviously nothing will ever top the gift of my baby girl but bob's portrait of me rates right up there with all the others I have received. It's hard to explain why it means so much to me but it has to do with all the passion I put into the blog and how much it means to me that it is appreciated.
I just wanted everyone to see my gift and to take the time to say thank you Bob. It's appreciated more than you can imagine.
