Holiday gift made from reclaimed wood. Handle was from a dowel I had lying around. I used a scrap of the pine from the tote for the box joint size. I have a jig for a small size joint but didn’t think it would look right and I didn’t feel like making another jig to have hanging around. So a pencil, combo square, dado set on the table saw, sled, and eyeballing it to make the box joints. Dado for the base. Three coats of polyurethane for the finish.

Nice tote. Here’s a similar one I made last year to give away at work.
