Coconut Shell Basket

A common project in elementary then was to make a basket out of coconut shells. You will need two whole husked coconut shells to be able to come up with this. With one coconut shell, you will have to saw the topmost part to create an opening enough to fit your hand in. You will then patiently scrape the coconut meat inside and sand the shell inside out. Patient enough so that the surface becomes as smooth as a baby's bum. Depending on your creativity, you might want to cut a portion enough to cover the other shell's opening or if you wish, you can cut it in such a way that it will overlap with the former's opening.
