First try at imitation Indian baskets. Both are maple segmented bowls 6”x 4’ and 8”x 8”. Lots of work, problem with shaky hand so could could not put finishing weave marks on top and bottom. These were more fun than the platter I did earlier. comments wwelcome

Basket/platter woven designs are my favorite of the turning world. Those really look nice.

Nice job. I did one of these last year and I understand what you mean about the being lots of work. My tiny trial bowl probably took 20-30 hours to complete. You really have to concentrate on what you are doing or you will mess up the pattern.

Love this treatment. I’ve seen a few turners doing similar woven styles, yours is the first with the native american-ish motif. Absolutely beautiful.
