Devon Maund A

Like the trug the Devon Maund or Splint Basket as they are sometimes known is made of wooden slats which are shaped and shaved with traditional hand tools; the froe and drawknife. The pieces are then steamed and attached with copper nails to the previously steamed and moulded rim and handle. The base of the basket is bound with a strip of copper. This larger of the two maunds that Brett makes has an oval rim.

The Devon Maund was originally used as a basket for gathering and storing produce such as potatoes and onions which were then stored in a cellar or cool place until needed.
