Do you need to be a hooker (a rug hooker that is!) to use this basket - of course not. This great basket is also perfect for quilters, knitters and other handcrafters. The uses don't stop there either - head out to the flea market in style with this wooden bottom basket or carry it to the grocery store as the ultimate reusable shopping bag.

Looking at the construction of this basket, it will hold and carry more weight due to the wooden bottom and Shaker Tape handles. The tape wraps completely around the basket - they are not handles attached around the rim of the basket. By creating the basket and handles in this manner, all the weight of the contents are shifted to the 1"wide cotton Shaker Tape handles and they are sturdy.

My husband cuts all my wooden bases for me. This one is a rectangular base with rounded corners. A groove is cut into the side of the base where the spokes are then anchored. NO GLUE is used to hold the spokes in place. ( Yes, I have a problem with glue- for me it's a no-no in basketweaving!)

Approximate measurements are: 12" tall, 17" long and 11" wide. The Shaker Tape handles are a comfortable length so you can carry this basket either over your shoulder or at your side.

The finish on the basket is 100% "green" black walnut stain that I create myself with black walnuts and water on my kitchen stove. There are no lingering odors from the use of mineral spirits, paint thinner or boiled linseed oil.

This basket features black Shaker Tape handles, black rim of and vintage label mounted on a black frame. The frame is drilled with holes and I tie it to the basket with black embroidery thread.

The vintage labels are made by hand from a fellow blogger. These are the absolute best labels, printed on a printing press rather than a computer printer and you can tell by the quality of them. The label maker does "distress" these labels to make them look old and worn.
