Trugs

Tuesday 19 March 2002

A trug is a tough wooden basket, handy for fetching produce from the garden or carrying the firewood.

Trug

English country folk (and town folk with rustic tastes) still like trugs​—​enough to support a cottage industry of chaps cleaving and shaving chestnut strips and thin willow boards and nailing them together. Peter Marden demonstrates the steps in the process. If you can’t get to him, or to a trug shop, you can buy a trug through the web.
