I have to apologise for not being here for so long and I have to welcome new followers. Thank you all for dropping by and taking a look. I love it when people come visiting! And a thank you for all your lovely comments too!
Now back to what I've been doing all these weeks! Well, I saw a photo of a Norfolk Eel trap in a basket book of mine and it presented a bit of a challenge which I always love! It literally took me almost 2 weeks to sort it out - but I won in the end. Photos below!
I also wanted to make an Asian style fish trap and needed to "tweak" the procedure somewhat - and good news - I won that battle as well. Take a look below!
The Fisherman's Baskets!!
The eel trap on the left was a real challenge as there is an internal tunnel and then the outer basket but it's all worked on the same base! Let me tell you it was fun!
The fish traps were also a bit a challenge as they are open top and bottom!!
Lobster pots, and some fishing net which I have made using sewing cotton! And a lobster!
Then I amused myself making a few different baskets as shown below.
I should perhaps mention that all the baskets shown are 1:12th scale.
