Making Square Rims

Mr. Basketmaker has been busy getting materials finished for the upcoming NCBA convention. When I visited his workshop, he was in the last phase of making some rims so I snapped a few pics to share with y’all.


The rims have already been boiled in water and bent around his molds and completed the first stage of drying. Here he’s making reference markings for his students on the rims before he takes them off the mold.





He’s got some great old windows in part of his workshop where lots of light comes in. Perfect place for his rims in their final drying stage!
