Every folding basket is a unique hand-made item. Each basket will be different in appearance from every other basket because every board is slightly different. In the smaller sizes I make several standardized size baskets. The smallest basket is about 7 inches wide by 12.5 inches long. These baskets range in price from $26.00 to $35.00 depending on the wood.

Medium size baskets are about 9 inches wide by 13.5 inches long, and range in price from the mid $30's to the mid $40's.
This next basket is specifically designed to serve as a bread basket. It is long and thin and just the right proportion to hold a loaf of French or Italian bread or a half dozen dinner rolls. You would put a napkin or cloth in the basket to wrap the bread to keep it warm, but also to keep crumbs from getting down in the groves. And with the cloth covering the basket you can fold the handle down and use it as a cutting board for the bread as well. Prices range from $35.00 to $46.00, depending on the wood. These baskets are about 6.5 inches wide by about 18 inches long.
The limiting factor in the size of the basket I can cut is the size of the piece of wood that I have to work with. The larger baskets that I cut start at about 10 inches wide and go up to about 12 inches wide. Their length will be from about 15 inches long up to as much as 19 or 20 inches long. Every basket will be different because when I find a wide board, I design a pattern to fit that board. Wide boards are rare and command a premium price, so I have a smaller variety of woods and they are correspondingly higher in price. Larger baskets will range in price from about $50 up to $90 or more, depending on the cost of the wood.

The special shape baskets are also cut out of a single flat piece of wood. There is a little foot on the bottom that you turn sideways, and you turn the basket sideways to stand it up, as is shown in the next picture. The basket part is round or heart shaped, and is smaller than my other baskets, but is useful as a candy dish or nut dish, or as a decorative accent. The last time I visited her, my Aunt Catherine pointed out that a coffee maker filter is the perfect size to use as a liner as she served us a party mix in one of my pineapple basket.
|The Pineapple baskets are about 13 inches high by 9 inches wide. They range in price from the mid $30's to the upper $40's depending on the wood.|
|The Apple baskets are about 13 inches high by 9 inches wide also. They range in price from the mid $30's to the upper $40's depending on the wood.|
|The Heart basket is about 10 inches high by about 8 inches wide. They range in price from the lower $30's to the mid $40's depending on the wood.|
The baskets shown in these pictures are probably not available for sale. In all likelihood they have been sold in the time from when I took the pictures and you are looking at them. They are examples of the several hundred baskets I make each year. What I have in stock each week will vary due to what I have finished recently and what I have sold at craft shows and by mail order. The best way to see all the varieties of woods and sizes is to come to one of the shows listed on my show schedule page. If that is not possible you can email or call me (the information is on the contact page) and I can discuss with you exactly what you are looking for, make suggestions and give you all the details on cost and shipping.
Prices are subject to change due to changes in the cost of wood.
