Finally finished this tote after 18 months in process. Lots of life moments in between the start to finish. Moving, new house, new job, third kid, shop setup, etc. I feel very blessed.

The design is from a Woodsmith magizine article, which I modified a bit. All walnut, except for a few strips of aluminum for the upper tray slides. I like how the sapwood / heartwood turned out. Finish is wipe on poly and paste wax.

I lost the in process pictures somewhere along the way. Time to fill it up and put it to use.
