Pardon the pun—I couldn’t help myself!
I bought this fun basket because I loved it!
But I confess, I also bought it
because -it needed- a WAY better handle!
And I wanted to add it to my stashes for 2 pop-up flea markets later this year.
Cool wire basket. Stupid handle. My remedy!
I happily took a hammer to the stupid plastic smashing it to pieces!
To the alarm of m’ma, I borrowed another piece of her mother’s broken cradle.
I cut out the section I wanted to use on the chop saw, then ripped that part in half at the table saw.
*There was no way to disconnect the metal handle to make any other kind of change.
Now cut in half to wrap around the metal handle, it would also require a long channel, a groove–which I created at the router table.
