This is a wooden starter round (#28), for making the center of a pine needle or any other coil woven basket. It is made from an old Oak tree that fell during a storm. My Dad and husband create these wooden basket inserts from fallen or downed trees on Dad's property here in the local area.
The wooden round is approximately 5 inches in diameter, so it will be a great start for a large basket. This piece has beautiful straight grain patterns, and will make an outstanding centerpiece for your creation.
These are the same type of wooden inserts I use when teaching basketry classes, and to make my own baskets. My baskets are always finished with multiple coats of shellac, which brings out the beauty and grain of the wood.
These wooden starter rounds are completely handmade. Therefore, it is impossible for them to be machine perfect. The wood will sometimes have blemishes and imperfections that are characteristic of unfinished wood. Please look at the pictures closely, and If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Your satisfaction with your purchase is my goal.
