Wooden Topped Lightship Baskets

This is a gallery of baskets with hand turned wooden lids of many descriptions. Click on the thumbnails to download an enlarged view and description of each photo. Turned wooden tops are a traditional art-form that I really enjoy making. Each top is individually made to fit its matching basket and some have a "surprise" inside.( An ice bucket, sewing basket with tray, or glass dish. Many of the tops have inlays and overlays of exotic woods, with knobs to match or accent the top.
