For this project, it started out as a simple bowl design, with straight or vertical sides. Using a wide beading tool, I made concentric divisions of “flat beads”. Next, I moved toward the built-in lathe indexing and put in the 24 lines. I needed a minimum of 48, so I eye balled splitting the different to double the line count.

I thought I could use a hand chisel to put grooves in spots, but this is some tough wood. I switched to an electric carving tool, that made a world of difference.

Finished with some lacquer on the outside. I would say it was a failure and a great learning experience.

Here’s this weeks video: Failed basket illusion

Thanks

You may think it failed but from her it looks cool. I think we criticize ourselves more than anyone. Very nice work.In that case I just had a failer too. LOL.

Yeah… I guess it wasn’t a traditional basket weave illusion, but not a complete failure. “Art” is in the eye of the beholder… or something like that. Thanks

Didn’t meet your expectations, but turned out pretty cool anyway…That’s how we learn for the next one…

I’ve learned more from my mistakes than my successes. Carry on!

I guess that makes it a basket illusion – illusion.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. :-)

I’ve been meaning to do another basket illusion bowl. Fun stuff.
