Stave baskets are very hard wearing and give years of service. You will be making a ‘number 2’ sized basket with a handle, which was designed to hold about 20lbs of potatoes using cleft ash for the ‘bonds’ and handle and western red cedar for the staves.
A traditional basket also known as a splint basket originating from west/north Devon and used by farmers and smallholders for planting and harvesting potatoes, apples, feeding stock, and a multitude of tasks on the land.
