Default Questions for basket makers

1. When you cut out each layer of the basket, do you drill a whole then thread the blade through or cut through the ring and then glue it back together?

2. Do you use CA glue to attach each layer to the next or a wood glue like titebond?

3. Do you use a press with CA glue like you would have to with a wood glue?

4. Any problems with the glue not holding and the layers snapping apart?

Thanks.

Hi Keith,

1. I drill a hole and thread the blade for each ring

2. I use CA glue to attach the rings. I prefer the thick/gel type

3. No press, but I do set some weight on the inverted basket for a few minutes. (soup cans work fine for me)

4. I only had one basket bottom come off, after the basket fell off a table.

Keith some do it both ways. Personally I try to keep the rings intact and that mean drilling a hole for each entry so that I can cut the ring. When doing the glue up I use Titebond II and a modified Carole Rothman bowl press. It gives great even pressure and I can put it aside while I work on something else. I have never had separation of the rings.

Drill hole, thread blade, sand sand and sand to get rid of drill mark, use titebond III to glue back together. I found that CA separates after a while. For a weight, I use chilton's auto manual and/or son's weights on top. some times I have to clamp if the wood is slightly warped.

Hi Keith...all of the above. I prefer the CA gel when I am doing one that has a raised bottom with the supports on the outside. But be careful because if you put on too much and it gets outside the glue area, it is a devil to get off before you put on a finish (much worse that Titebond II.

I am trying a different glue and will let you know the results. Hubby tapes and tapes shows and watches them before he goes to work. Today he was watching one on glue and MADE (as if anyone could make me do anything) me watch it, and they were demoing Titebond II & III and Titebnond Molding & Trim glue. The molding glue is very thick, so you only need the amount you can put on with a toothpick on the basket and it doesn't run when it spreads. I have the problem with the glue runs when I do my cardholders and hubby sands, sands and sands to get rid of them. This should put an end to it. I am cutting a basket tonight and will glue up tomorrow and let you know how it works.

Thanks Betty and others. We are in the process of cleaning out the basement so I can work down there through the winter. I'd like to add some baskets to my show inventory next year. I've never tried them before and wanted to know where to start.

Keith I agree with Betty. I glue basket and bowl rings together with Titebond molding glue. In fact, I use it for all the smaller items I need to glue together. On the basket rings, make sure your board if very flat or you will have a problem having the glue hold them together.

I drill each one and use Titebond molding and trim glue. It dries clear, has fast tack and is thick for no runs. I have never had one come apart. I have dropped and broken one but not where the glue was. Steve

You drill a hole in the ring and put glue on the lower ring and the glue is forced into the hole? Hmmm. I tried it on the cardholders today and was SOLD. I put a thin line on, smoothed it with a toothpick and put on the rib. Put glue on top of the rip and put on the top piece and pressed together. The upside - fast adhesion time. The downside - fast adhesion time. LOL Was very happy how well it worked with no glue runs. Now, to cut that basket out!! If your boards aren't completely flat, clamp TIGHTLY together until dry and all should be fine.
