Recommended Tools
For Beginners

Customers often ask us to recommend tools for their specific projects. It’s our opinion that you can do a fairly good job using just your old pruning shears, a pair of scissors and a break-away razor knife. But, having the right tool for the job does help to make building your basket or seating your chair much easier.

Below you’ll find a list of tools. These are the tools that we use in our shop and in basket making classes. They are tried-and-true and they work well for the jobs at hand.

So, pick the tools you need, whether you’re a beginner or experienced weaver. As you try different baskets and learn new techniques you’ll appreciate the finer points of these quality tools.
