I have had enough of cheap plastic ,so I reinforced the laundry basket instead of buying a new one.
I have access to baltic birch from the place I work. so I started with cutting two pieces 2 1/2” wide and long enough to cover the length of the basket , shaped handles on the underside, then sanded the rough edges and scrwed it on through the inside, ans just like new and better

As long as you can fix it , It aint Broke. why not make the whole thing from wood like the Shakers did.
