The second part of the blog shows how the lobster pot gets its rounded shape. We have now pulled the structure from the ground and flipped it over. The tying up of the long stakes is crucial for shaping the pot. A clove hitch is the best knot for securing the stakes so they do not loosen while weaving. The more we play about at this stage to get the shape the better it turns out. Now we can work sitting in a low chair with the pot on our lap, much more comfortable!
Part three will show how to turn down the base.
