    I saw this on another forum. I thought I'd share this as I know lots of folks like to make their own baskets.
    This is the best DIY basket I've seen. A bit more expensive but a much nicer end product in my opinion then the Ikea step stool models I've seen.
    Might be a good winter project for someone looking to make their own basket.

    Great idea with those cones. Someone should put the cones in an IKEA basket...would be perfect

    Very nice! I like the conduit bracket rod-holder idea.

    As far as adhesives that work on polyethylene plastic (if you need to glue down the cones), what I have done on my fishing kayaks is to simply rough up the mating surfaces with 80 grit or coarser, so as to insure a good mechanical bond. Not much will stick to smooth polyethylene, so it must be roughed up. I have used Marine Goop, and also contact cement, successfully this way.

    Golfman, That's a great idea. I have been holding off on buying/making a stripping basket but I think the combination of the Ikea stool and those caulking cones look good enough to finally bite. If I get there this weekend I'll post some pics.

    Back in what seems like a former life I used to screen print on a off brand of custom frisbees. We had to flame treat them to get the ink to stick, the injection molding process leaves a microscopically smooth surface that the flame treating takes care of. Might be the same for the injection molded tubs and basins and adhesives... Just quickly flame the surface with a propane torch or similar.

    The cones come five per package. Five would probably work better on the IKEA stool anyway becaue they are pretty small compared to a dishpan.

    Don't forget to put 3 dozen holes in the bottom of your new basket....

    Yes you should. This is great info. Keep it coming and thanks for the ideas ('cept the three dozen holes) ;)
