Basket Making Hand Tools

You've often heard professional craftsmen comment that "it's easy when you have the right tools". Basket makers have traditionally "made do" with tools meant for other purposes. Now Nate offers tools that have been carefully selected or created expressly for the basket maker. Employing some age-old woodworking techniques together with some brand new tool concepts, these tools will make your work easier and improve the quality of your finished basket. Whether it's our cutting or packing tools, you can be sure they will enhance your basket making pleasure.

We have separated the tools into two groups.

Don't just "make do"! Select from all of our fine tools to make your basket making experience and absolute pleasure.
