It is supposed to be an apple basket but you can see that it has decided to become something else. the sides were to be vertical to make a smooth surface to insert the pegs for the swing handle.
I should have known. At the beginning, it could not go together fast enough and yet it resisted my attempts to shape it early on. It was as though it had its own purpose in mind and could not wait to fulfill it.
This is what it SHOULD look like when
it becomes an apple basket but I am thinking it may want to become a potato basket...with handles incorporated into the rim.
