If you're looking for expanded metal material; try the steel office supply items like wastebaskets, desk organizers, pencil holders, etc. I have found them painted black or silver at Office Depot and even Wal-Mart. They are made with a round tube framework, to which the expanded metal-looking screen is welded. If you buy a large piece (a wastebasket, for example) and cut away the frame; you end up with a large sheet of strong screen material that you can cut to whatever size you need. You'll have to frame it with something though, as the raw edges are sharp! -Mike

Check the mesh of your basket against whatever they're selling in the office products section. For some reason, when I look at your photo, it seems like the mesh is larger than the one I found, (maybe it's just me). When I measure the mesh with a ruler, I find that the height of the 'diamonds' are 4 to the inch, and (measuring diagonally and counting the width of the 'diamonds') they are 7 to the inch. But, unless your dimensions are radically different, then it probably doesn't matter all that much - was just curious if there are different sizes out there.

Yes that's right this one is kind of large. I'm using this for a special thing, will show later when finished. There is a lot of different sizes out there so a shopping around is a must to find your style. Hit the mall.

If you ever get rid of an old microwave oven, the metal mesh in the door window is perfect for this use. Most of these doors are held together with a dozen or so screws and come apart pretty easily. The metal used is pretty thin and will bend or kink if you aren't careful when handling it.
