22″ x 13″ x 9″
Woven, split-work construction; hand-split black ash and white oak, saddle leather straps
Woven from New Hampshire black ash with white oak rim and handle, this basket was a fun take on the traditional New England pack basket. It has a bit of flare from the belly to the rim that you typically don’t see in these baskets, but I wanted to give it a more sculpted shape.
Below is a much larger pack basket I made while working with renowned basket maker John McGuire.
