I was recently offered a big bunch of 3” cherry strips if I’d make the man something in exchange for them, so I came up with this little bench caddy to send him. It’s 7” long, 2” wide and high, with a handle added, oiled and waxed. it worked pretty neatly, and I got lots of cherry strips to make more!

That’s one sturdy little caddy Barb.
Good score for you and a nice little box for him….... Win-win.

Barb, that is a nice piece and I would say that he surely must be happy with that trade. Congratulations.

Thanks, everyone. And no, Dovetail, those are TS cut finger joints. I can’t imagine doing finger joints by hand!

Thanks Kiefer; no, the handle was drilled out with a forstner bit and the corners taken off with a bandsaw, then filed and sanded smooth. I’m working on some more, with a dovetail attachment of the handle.
