I always have those left over scraps from various projects that are too small to use on normals sized projects, so I made some tool, totes and garden totes for friends. These make great christmas presents since you can fill them up with chocolates, beer, cigars, or anything that the person who is receiving these would like.

This is a great idea. I had something like this kicking around in the back of my mind but not as nice as what you have made. I hope you won’t mind if I copy your thinking some?

These are cool, can you add some close up pictures of the handle attachment? Are they just thru or are they wedged? Thanks!

Do to my haste in making these, The handles fit very loosly to the walls. I attempted to put wedges in, but they do very little so I ended up nailing long brads to help hold the handles to the carcass. The wedges are simply for show, and if I had to do it over again, I would use darker color wedges for contrast.
