I was asked to make make a potato bin, I didn’t have a clue of what it would look like or where to start, so I used my imagination and came up with what you see here. I didn’t like the idea of a woman having to get on her knees just to get the last few spuds so I made it with draws, thus alleviating the problem of sore knees and aching back.
Since making this project I have 3 more orders of the same to make.
Notice the handles? no I did not have one too many to drink, I just wanted to be different.
It stands 1mtr X 450 X 500 and is made from Camphor Laurel with purple heart trimming and rosewood edging.

That’s a pretty swanky potato bin. Now if it just had some nice wheels it would be perfect- I could just wheel it to the sink for cleaning and peeling the ‘taters. :) Would drop less on the floor! ;)

The CL is beautiful in color and grain : )
What are the handles made from ? They look plastic in the pix.
I’d be tempted to straighten them out , but that’s just me : )
