Here is the bottom of the Tennessee basket. I show it to you because it shows the open weave design that the next basket had.

I retro-fitted this with a sturdier bottom so it can really be used as the market basket is was designed to be.

Here it is drying on the porch after its a maple finish. It took four days to dry. I will not be doing any more basket finishes until we have a long stretch of warm, dry weather.
