Here is another prototype of a bicycle basket/crate I am thinking about making for my etsy page.
This one is different from the last in that its cedar and is smaller and the base is now held in with joinery rather than nails.

The dimensions are now 10.2×13.875.

The joinery is from a great resource for anybody with a cnc

Produced on a CNC. Finished with penofin verde.

I am trying my hand at dovetails for the first time, using cedar to make a shoe box. These are very nice dt’s and the asymmetry gives them a nice organic feel.
