Custom Made



John can work to customer specifications to produce bespoke square, rectangular, round, oval or D-shaped work. John can also copy a basket you have and want replicated or, in some circumstances, can repair baskets for you. Please feel free to contact me with your enquiry. The most common request is for rectangular baskets to fit onto a shelf or shelving.
