Outdoor fall displays are fun to make.They put me in the mindset of autumn and anticipate the coming holidays.Last year I made a wooden pumpkin yard display out of pallet wood, a project you can make with just a jigsaw in an hour.
This year I thought it would be fun to attempt to make a rustic fall bushel basket out of pallet wood.The kind of bushel for holding apples, though usually used as a decorative display.This is one of those projects that is simple, but fought with me every step of the way.
Some projects are just like that.The challenges facing me were bending the wood for the hoops that hold the slats in place, and coming up with a method to attach them.I've made plenty of bent wood, laminated projects, so cutting the thin strips was easy.
The only trick is cutting them the right thickness.If they are too thick, they will break when you try to bend them, if they are too thin, they won't have much strength.This varies depending on the species of wood you are using.
Oak bends very nicely, but is somewhat expensive.I often use pine 2x4s which work fine....
