Is this basket really 1/2 bushel - no it's a little smaller than that, but I liked the name! The weaving starts at the edge of the wooden base that anchors the upright spokes. I used a narrower reed for the first few rows keeping the basket's diameter growing. Once I reached the point I was ready to turn the spokes upright, I switched to a wider reed for the remainder of the basket. Once I felt the height of the basket was substantial enough to balance the size of the handle, the handle was inserted and a rim applied.

The basket's approximate measurements are 12" in diameter, 7 1/2" to the rim of the basket and 13 1/2" tall to the top of the handle.

Once completed, I stained the entire basket with my 100% "green" boiled black walnut dye. There are no chemicals used in this dye - it's dried black walnuts and water that I cook on my kitchen stove.

I ship via USPS, usually the day after your order is received. This basket may come to you via Parcel Post, however I do refund any shipping that I'm over on my estimate - anything over $1.00. You will receive a shipping notification with a tracking number as soon as I print your label.
