I think it’s cool. Anything nontraditional is cool. It’s different!

I just added an inside picture, when it uploads, but in the picture the glue was still wet. I was taking a picture and sending to my wife, on our phones, so I was being anxious and couldn’t wait until that pesky glue dried.

Thanks itsmic…I uploaded the inside, but it’s not on here. I did it last night. I’ll check when I get home.

Hi, Willie.
I am impressed that you were able to create something so fine out of plywood. Sloped sides give it a clean look and cool lines.
Great job.

I like it Willie, it kinda has a basket look to it. You did good. I’m thinking about maybe adding a handle, back to that basket theme. A little constructive criticism. I would have covered the ends of the plywood with strips like you applied first and then put the horizontal strips on top of them.

devann, I thought about the same thing, but I ran out of the oak that I was cutting for the strips.
