Interesting design. Does the handle swing down to give greater access to the contents? (It kind of looks like it only has one peg – to allow it to pivot?)

Yeah, the handle swings to either side, I use magnetic catches in the handles to keep it straight up, and that works ok.

However something that I didn’t consider is that when weight shifts inside the box it can flip over spilling its contents, to fix this I opened 5/8 holes on the sides of the handle at the end not shown in this picture and slide dowels in to lock the handle in place when I need to move the box.

That was going to be my next question. I thought it would; being that the pin was so far down the side.

well it looks really nice and I am sure it is handy. The Maple handle looks great against the darker body.

Very nice. It reminds me of the one that Tom Fidgen built in his book “Made By Hand”—a great book.

Nicely done. Good looking joints and great design. Is the tray part of the design?
