BEST, BEGINNING, BASKET, with a BASE

The 4 B's:  BEST, BEGINNING, BASKET, with a BASE.  That would be our Cherokee style bushel basket. 

If you want to give some one a severe case of WEAVER FEVER this is a good project to start them out with.  

There's no base to weave up since it's starts with a slotted wooden base.  The colors are dynamic as is the Cherokee cross pattern.  Carved oak  bushel handles make it stout.  The best part....it's easy to weave up.

Marsha Orr, nope I don’t lighten it. If yours is darker (like patina) I would say your reed is old. I remove the cable ties as I come to them when lashing. Just cut them off so they are out of you way.

My reed’s natural color is more beige (darker) than this…do you lighten it? Also I have not used zip ties for the rim. Is there a best method of removal ng them as you lash the rim on? I look e this basket and the colors!,
