Here’s something I made for my wife a little over a year ago. This was a pain to build only because we had just moved and I had to hunt for all my tools and the garage was packed with boxes but I’m happy with the way it turned out.

Nice looking bin. A very useful item.

Beautiful storage space. I like those metal parts. They get this project into higher class.

I love the use of the hardware…it gives it an antique feel. Great piece

Stellar job on the tater and onion box….I just finished building one for my daughter-in-law for Christmas….Looks like we used the same hardware, too….Those boxes can be nice looking, but functional too…I’m sure your wife is very proud of it…..You done good…!!

Thanks everyone. There is one thing I cannot stand about this project and its the use of stickers for the potato an onions labels. It was supposed to be a temporary thing but here it is a year+ later and I’m still looking at them telling myself I need to do something about it. I’m open to ideas. I thought about wood burning but my free hand isnt all that great.
