HOLES TOO SMALL
By Amy Art Teacher
from Kenosha, WI
Comments about Creativity Street Wood Basket Bases:
NONE of these bases worked for my art students. I am highly disappointed. The students in my Art class were frustrated that none of their reed would go in.Splintered, cracked, low quality wood bases.One student was CRYING, they were so frustrated.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

When working with a group of students it is always imperative that every piece is just like every other. The bases are smooth with exceptional care taken with drilling the holes. It is easy to thread the reed into the smooth holes. Constant dipping of the basket making project into water does not wrap the base. We have used these bases for years to make baskets, vases, and treasure boxes. We will never use any other.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I will use this product to create bases for baskets I will weave for my grand daughters birthday presents. They make the task much easier.

Our elementary school has a Colonial Day each year for usually around 190 students. I have been teaching basket weaving to our 4th grade students for the past 15 years. The bases are very nice and the kids have fun learning an old time craft! Thanks!

I use these bases to mount round or oval artwork, such as mandalas. I put adhesive felt on the back so you don't see the small holes used for basket weaving. Works great! And a terrific price, too!

Not Quite a Great Deal
The 5" Round and the 8" Round definitely need more holes drilled to be suitable for basketry. If they would improve those two items, this would be a good value for what it is. I usually prefer a good, grained wood that can be stained and /or sealed for a nice finished look. Not sure what you can do with these other than to decoupage them or use an acrylic paint to cover the particle board. If that was the intended use, only then would I recommend them.

Not quite what I expected
The 4" base would be better with more holes closer together. The 3" bases are fine.
