BASKETRY: Frames, Feet & BasesKITCHEN CADDY BASKET FRAME
An oak “D” with three Shaker pegs set across the bottom and a crosspiece about 3" up. Frames a small rectangular basket.
Push three or more up into the bottom of a basket so it can stand on its own feet.
These are the traditional bases, made from oak, with a channel around the outside rim. A plastic flower pot makes a good mold. (There is no hole drilled through the center.)
PLYWOOD BASKET BASES
Cut from quarter-inch plywood, with holes about a half-inch in and one inch apart. There are an odd number of holes, for weaving up continuously. The holes take #4 round reed. Great for getting children started; baskets can be woven with yarns, vines, and other fibers, as well as with reed. Use the table below to determine how much #4 you will need for stakes (there are about 500ft/coil).
