There was an error in the Materials list for Carole Rothman’s basket, featured in SSW Spring/Summer 2016 (Issue 63, page 22). The blank for the 5/8″ (16mm)-thick maple base should be 5-1/2″ (140mm) square, not 4″ (102mm) square. If you prefer not to buy and cut a new piece of wood, you can use the remainder of the original blank. Sand off the wedges from the bottom, and fill the small hole in the center with glue and sawdust. We apologize for the error.
