I scrolled these baskets from impressive patterns from Alexandr Fox in the Ukraine. They are a bit tedious and time consuming to make, but the finished product is worth it. They will make pretty nice presents.

Nice baskets. I have made 8 of his baskets in the last month. A couple I increased the size. A bit harder to put together.

I agree with you completely these are very time consuming and also very delicate when completed but they are sure nice to look at. You did an excellent job.

I have played with scrollsaws for almost 65 years and never been brave enough to try one of those.

You certainly did a nice job on the baskets. I have cut one and was successful, tried a second and the wood I used would not hold together. It was very delicate like the first one you have pictured.

Congratulations on a great result.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
