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"
