So he got thin plywood and some round lath. The instructions on how to make one came from a book Strömsö.
Following the instructions A wet the middle part of the plywood and then started bending. He did have bit of problems with the plywood braking slightly from place where happened to be a knot. We later thought that the bending would have gone nicer if he would have used so called aircraft plywood, where the quality is better.
The basket was left to dry for a few days.
The plywood discoloured from the areas where it had been wet most and since there was some braking in the plywood that A had to fix so he decided to paint the basket white.
And why am I only showing this to you now? Well... we forgot to take a photo of the finished wood carrying basket. Then last weekend before the Halloween party we visited the couple's home and finally took the photo of the basket. And we were so happy to see it's in use and in front of their amazing fireplace.
