Tom and Will from Tom Will Make are making some pretty awesome stuff, including these baskets made from used climbing ropes and an ash wood base. This larger basket uses 200 ft. of rope woudn into a permanent coil attached to the Ash base. The basket itself is stiff enough to stand up but not so rigid that you can’t cram stuff in there. Even though these ropes have past their prime for saving lives, they’re still crazy durable and perfect for tidying up the home of outdoor enthusiasts. They are $390, which is a big chunk of change for a basket, but if you send them your old rope, they’ll make it into a basket for you for $100 less.
