Progress comes in tiny bits sometimes

Yesterday I had decided that I wanted to get started on the storage containers for the Farmstand project that I am getting ready to do. I had a picture in mind of exactly what I wanted to make; a basic bushel style basket that I could make lots of to display some of the types of produce in.

 I think part of the problem was that I knew exactly what I wanted and because of that I wasn't satisfied with my attempts. Finally after working on these off and on all day (12 trial baskets in all) I got just about what I wanted. It is close enough to use and I am sure I will improve the results as I go.

One of my challenges was that I wanted to make this a very easy project so that I can make a short video on the baskets at some point this spring or summer. I think the basket I came up with will be an easy and fun project that can be used in many different projects, not just for produce.

What do you think?

    1. thank you, I have actually changed them up just a bit to make them easier to teach and to get consistent results. Hopefully I can get a video done for making them in a few weeks.
