Garden Tote made out of B&Q’s finest construction lumber.(Specifically a 1×6 and a 2×3).

First stab at dovetails, which turned out better than I’d expected.

Finished with Colron Cedar Danish Oil and a few coats of Wilko own brand varnish.

The last pic is the tools used to make it, there should be a spokeshave in there as well.

Feel free to rip it apart / add suggestions / comments.

-- I've worked out how to sharpen, now how do you get blood out of pine?

Looks great! All hand tools I see … now, didn’t that feel good? Good job!

This tote looks great and that wood is great.
