This is a wooden starter round (#9), made from black Walnut, for making the center of a pine needle or any other coil woven basket. My Dad and husband create these wooden basket inserts from fallen or downed trees on Dad's property here in the local area.
This piece measures 3-1/2 inches in diameter. This is an unusual dark color wood, that will give you a distinctive and beautiful finished basket.
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.
