Basket Weaving Bases, Dyes, Stains, Tools

Our SLOTTED BASES come in 5 shapes. Made in the USA of our superior quality oak. Slotted base TIP: Be sure that you don't oversoak the spokes for slotted bases or they'll swell too much. We cut the spokes and drop into water as we cut. Then immediately after cutting the spokes, remove from water, one by one, and insert into base. Perfect timing!

Be sure to scroll down this page to see more terrific tools and bases.
