As this was my first venture into the area of building said basket I did search the posts and came to the conclusion that the rubbermade route was the way to go. I did see several coments about the Orvis offering with its contoured side which fits some of our corporate statures a little better.
Taking heat gun [paint striper] in hand and a pair of oven mits I heated up the appropriate side and in 10 Min had a very well contoured basket. It dose not require very much heat to make this material very pliable and it retains the shape.
Now I only have to decide what to use for fingers.
