Cut 30 spokes from 1/2" FF each 8" long. If the groove in your base is too narrow to insert the spokes, run sandpaper around the groove several times, and/or sand down the ends of each spoke (you want a tight fit). Insert all spokes into the base, spacing them evenly. Weave 2 rows 11/64" FO start and stop, keeping the spokes FLAT. Then gently upset the spokes and weave 2 more rows 11/64" FO (for a total of 4 rows).

Weave start and stop the follow rows:
1 row 1/4" FF dyed walnut
1 row 1/4" FF dyed rust
1 row 11/64" FO
2 rows 5/8" walnut basket strips
1 row 11/64" FO
1 row 1/4" FF dyed rust
1 row 1/4" FF dyed walnut
3 rows 11/64" FO
1 row 7mm FF (rim Row)

Pack well, cut and tuck spokes. Rim with 1/2" FO, seagrass between rims, and lash with 11/64" FO.

Maple Curls: Soak in warm water for about 1 minute, then put into a plastic bag to "mellow" for about 15 minutes. I found the maple was easier to work with by cutting into 3 shorter pieces. Insert the end of the strand behind a vertical spoke, give a slight twist and insert the end behind the vertical spoke in the row below. Continue around the basket working up and down. Refer to photo.

Spray with Weaver's Stain - I used Clear.
