The first basket I made is a Pie Basket, the link will take you to a full explanation on how to build it. Then I bought several kits on the internet. Now that I'm back in France I'm making baskets with a basket maker from my village, the baskets are made in wild hazelwood.

Chair Caning

I took a class at Woodcraft where I learned to recane a chair using pre-woven caning.

What I really wanted to learn though was hand caning. I bought a few books online, and my dad had two old chairs he wanted me to repair so I got started.
