Books About New England Woodsplint Basketry

Historic woodsplint baskets in New England were typically woven of Black ash (Fraxinus nigra), which was sometimes referred to as brown ash. Less frequently White Oak (Quercus alba), hickory, maple, chestnut, poplar or other wood species were used. To learn more about the history and production of hardwood splint baskets in the New England tradition I recommend that you read these black ash basketmaking books:
