Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

Basset Hound in a Basket

You’ve seen my original Basset Hound in a Box post, so I won’t go into great detail on what got me to this point…just look back on the previous post if you’d like to see those steps.

It was suggested to me, though, that the same carving would look nice with a woven basket rather than a bag. That turned out to be a good suggestion as the carving of a basket weave is something that I hadn’t tried before and it turned out to be fun.

The thing that you have to keep in mind is that the weave has a horizontal band and two vertical bands, or in my rendition, more of a rounded cane. The horizontal bands weave over one vertical cane and under the adjacent cane. Once you get your head around that, it’s just repetitive carving. I finished up with a wood burning tool to keep everything nice and neat and “split” the horizontal band just to make it look more complicated!
