Ply-Split Garlic Baskets
I made these Ply-Split Garlic Baskets with 3-ply Danish cord, a commercially-made paper cord that is usually used for weaving chair seats. The photo on the left shows the three sizes, and the photo below is a close-up of the bottom the Large Garlic Basket.
John and I made a 47-minute video on how to make the Ply-Split Garlic Basket. You can purchase this as streaming video from Taproot Video. On my YouTube Channel, you can view scenes from the video speeded up so you can see the process of making the ply-split garlic basket in 5 minutes!
You can order a kit with instructions and pre-cut lengths of Danish cord from my Kits page, and a size 8 gripfid from my Tools page.
The instructions for the Ply-Split Garlic Basket are also available separately in PDF format.
The photo on the right shows the base of the Large Garlic Basket, which uses 32 cords. The Medium uses 24 cords and the Small uses 16 cords.
The Small Garlic Basket can be completed in a one-day workshop.
