    My daughter threatened me with a sharp object when I got close to her hello kitty stickers.

    I believe Stonefish is the PNW sales rep for sanrio. If not...then he should be.

    Being the resident artist, maybe GAT can come up with one?

    I don't have a problem with water in my basket... but I am also 6' 5" :)

    The ikea one works well, but I need to add some cones. I think the homemade tupperware popcicle cones would work awesome.

    Yep, pressure from Go Fish is what caused me to put my Hello Kitty with an eyepatch decal on my stripping basket. Been there for, oh, maybe 5 years now.

    Somewhere on this site I saw a DIY stripping basket that didn't have screws/caps, they just glued something to the stool bottom (and it wasn't golf tee's or yellow triangle paint things). I have tried for over an hour to find it. Can anyone help me locate the thread?

    Sorry Pat but the ones on page two are not what I was asking for; and yes I looked at those maybe 5 time to make sure I didn't over look anything.

    I did find a link to what i was looking for- http://troutlegend.com/forum/gear-talk/home-made-stripping-baskets/

    I wanted something w/o screws, and this seem to do the job.

    Other than the screws/christmas tree fasteners its really the same thing. Glad you found what you were looking for though, that kind of thing can be maddening, like losing scissors at the tying bench.
