I posted a forum topic on this but it looks like I never posted a project.

Made from 3/4 Red Oak. Red Oak Stain and 3 coats of Poly. I did stick three felt pads on the bottom so that it didn’t mar the floor. I’m not sure that was necessary but I figured it couldn’t hurt anything.

I wish it had some holes in the sides for handles. It’s sanded smooth and made from 3/4 Oak so it’s heavy which makes hard to pick up.

Note to self: “The TP needs a re-filling!”

That turned out nice. You can just glue and screw some blocks on the sides for handles if you like.

A plastic grocery bag would fit in it but I seldom put a bag in it. Without getting into details, about the only thing that really gets put in there are empty TP rolls.

I would’ve loved to have seen a ring that goes inside of the basket, that way you could put a bag in it and around the ring, preserving the beauty while enhancing the usability.

If you don’t get what I’m saying, the bag would be opened and wrap around the ring to hold it open, then the ring would be pushed down to fit snugly just below the top of the basket. Then you wouldn’t need to make handles because you’d just be removing the bag to empty it.
