I gave a riddle in my last post - so have you figured out how I make a basket without making a basket?
Let me digress with a little history of the kind of basket I will make - perhaps you'll begin to figure out the riddle. Google research brought up a company, Barden Building Systems, whose beginnings go back into the early 1900s. Barden and Robeson began building wagon wheels in 1909, and then started making bushel baskets in 1911 to help the fruit trade flourishing near by in the Finger Lake Region of Pann Yan, New York. During WWII they stopped bushel basket production to make ammunition boxes for the government. After the war they began reproduction of the bushel baskets.
