Basketbases.com specializes in manufacturing "slotted" hardwood bases for basket weaving, I make the raw wooden bases or bottoms for basket weavers. Using lumber harvested from Wisconsin's central hardwoods region, our hardwoods consist of: Oak, Maple, Cherry, Hickory, Walnut and Ash. I also carry a few exotic woods from Africa and South America along with some hard to find "spalted" hardwoods. I find that utilizing these hardwoods gives a woven basket a professional artisan look versus that of pine bases or lower end softwoods.
All of my wooden bases have a thin slot that is 1/16" wide and 1/2" in depth for inserting your reed. Some bases can be made with double slots for creating heavy wall baskets. All of my bases are sanded on all sides and edges. Bases are ready for weaving and staining.

***NEW: You now have more options on selecting wood types that are available on my bases. The selections (drop down button) are present when you are viewing the product. If no additional selections are available then the item is made from Oak.
