Bowls and Baskets
I am new to this forum but not new to scrolling. The attached is a picture of some of the items I make and sell at craft fairs.I really enjoy reading all the posts from fellow scrollers and pick up many good tips. My DW 788 is about 10 yrs old and going strong with FD blades. I hope the picture looks ok.

Welcome to the board and thanks for sharing your talent. Nicely done.

Welcome to the forum. You have some very nice looking baskets there. I always get a kick from customers that pick up a basket and look and look...not knowing how we make them.

Love those baskets... I am pretty new to the craft and did one small basket and gave it away. I have become a little obsessed with the basket and love all of yours!
I am currently (since it is too cold to be in the shop) working on a pattern for a basket type project.
I've never done a pattern before and IF it works this will be a first for me.

Brenda, I looked at your gallery and your items are all great. Most of my baskets come from plans by Monroe Dutcher. He has 2 volumes but I think they have been out of print for a long time and hard to find.

Wormy, I have those 2 books but never made the baskets. I figured I couldn't get out of them what I put into them price wise. What do you sell yours for, if you don't mind me asking? I would start at $40 as they are so time consuming. Great work!!!

I get $50 for the large oval basket and $35 for the bread basket. I sell 3 or 4 of the ovals and 6 to 8 of the bread baskets at craft fairs each season from Sept to Dec. Some of the smaller candy dishes go for $25. It is my hobby and I always have customers tell me that my prices are too low. Maybe but it is fun, keeps me active and buys some more supplies. There is a crafter selling these baskets on Etsy. That is the only other place I have seen them.
