Anyone know where I can get 20mm square wicker bases?

Stuff that looks like the back of a chariot.

If possible I'd rather get a sheet of the stuff, so I'd be able to cut it to size.

Thanks

Have you seen that needlepoint plastic grid stuff? That might do and it's pretty cheap.

While this isn't easier than just buying a premade base, it should be possible to take a chariot floor piece from an unassembled chariot, moisten it, press it into a flat piece of green stuff, peel it off, set it onto something flat (maybe even a 25mm base...?), and then use that as a pressmould to turn any base you want into a wicker chariot base - and being based on the actual chariot floor, it'll match perfectly.

That's, why we keep you around Alex!

Just the idea I needed.

That's why? I thought it was because he brought the chicks in...

Excellent idea Alex. I wonder how much of a demand there would be for just such a base...
