It’s fun to see how different student/customers change up the idea a bit when making their own basket weave carvings. The result is that each person’s creations are unique.
Variation on the Basket Weave Idea
Customer Student Julio Di Filippo, who carves as a hobby, has had some fun experimenting with the different looks possible with the basket weave pattern. He’s made a vase, a basket and a bowl, each with his own special touches.

The photos came with this message:
This is my third time to do this basket. I finally made it, just in time for my daughter 32th birthday.

Six days later, I received the following note and photo from Diep.
After eating the flower basket I save the basket. I carved daisy flowers and make into new veggie basket. I am so excited and want to share this photo with you.
Honeydew Bowls Basket Weave Carvings for Buffet Table
I love this basket lesson it’s great. Not to mention “no one” can teach it like you. I had a blast carving this and everyone went crazy over this basket carving. It is truly a work of art and looks so hard to do. You made it so simple to watch the lesson and in no time it was done and perfect. Your step by step lesson is so perfect for any level carver. You are the best teacher. Tonight I brought home 3 cantaloupes and 3 honeydew melons to carve in to baskets for morning. I recommend your lessons to everyone and this is a must try for sure.
Two variations of a cantaloupe carved with the Basket Weave Pattern
As you can see from these student photos of basket weave carvings, you can use variations of the same carving technique on honeydews, cantaloupes, and watermelons to make bowls, vases and baskets and more.
You’ll get step by step instructions for carving the Basket Weave pattern in our Melon Basket Weave video lessons that you’ll find in our online shop. Our Thai Pro Knife or Dual Blade Knife is recommended for this carving.
