Wooden Bottom Toy Basket - before “finish”.
Truth be told ... we do not spend much time contemplating that dilemma. Every piece that comes out of our shop has some form of a finish on it. Whether dipped in an interior grade woodworking stain or finished in our three-step distressed paint finish, all of our projects undergo treatment to refine and protect the soft wood reed fibers. Not only does a quality finish preserve the basket but it also creates a great patina for each individual piece.

I have been weaving for a lot of years and, to me, a basket just doesn’t look finished until it has some kind of stain or finish on it. I don’t like the looks of the pale reed. Kind of like the basket is “naked” until you give it some finishing.
