Default Off the bench just intime for christmass

I had a late order On Saturday before Christmas for 4 baskets. I am a lineman by trade I made the baskets in between working 30 hours of overtime last week. It was worth it to get the call on Christmas Day from the people that got the gifts. They where so happy. For me being a 4th generation sheet metal coppersmiths the money is good buy making someone happy feels better.

Thumbs up copper baskets

Very nice work.
> I see how you solved the problem of making an apparent double seam on the bottom of the tapered basket. I do it the same way. It makes a flawless hemmed bottom.Your twisted wire makes nice "camo" also. Quite nice !!
