Oak Hamper

This red oak hamper was made from cut off boards from the firewood pile at Hamilton Hardwoods. I went by that place going to work every day and they had a big wire basket full of oak, cherry, walnut and hickory pieces that they trimmed off the ends of loads on semi trailers to square them off. I am a scrounger and love free wood.
We have been using it for years. It is made from slats which were run through the jointer at a tangent angle so there was a flat surface to glue along the entire edge. They were air nailed and glued on top and bottom to the frames. I used pegboard in the back for ventilation. It is finished with satin polyurethane .
 It is 22"x12.5"x25" 

Cheers, Jim

I like the radius set-up. It looks very solid and should last next to forever. Excellent job !!!   Mike
Thank you all for the nice comments.

Hi Pottzy, I have the transfer of photos handled. I was a little concerned that any of the old ones would work because I had put them in LJ's with the dumb old photobucket program!! I don't know if you remember it. It was as screwed up like the new LJ's is................cheers, Jim
