Building a Crabpot
Framing the Top Edge
- Along the four top edges, frame the crabpot
using 11-gauge smooth wire by attaching with crabpot staples. Use
one long continuous piece to frame the entire pot, bending with
pliers in order to make the 90-degree turns.
- Use 11-guage smooth wire to finish the
unfinished edge of the side piece. Simply bend the protruding edges
around the wire to create a smooth, clean, finished appearance.
Note: instead of framing the entire top of the
crabpot, you can opt to use the smooth wire to finish off just the
unfinished edge. This saves on supplies and doesn't really affect the
sturdiness of the pot.
