This is a modified version of a garden Trug project that appeared in the Summer 2013 edition of the Canadian Home Workshop Magazine.

It is made of Birch and Western Cedar. The wooden Plugs that decorate the sides are made from a scrap of exotic wood I had on hand.

I made two just because, just because it’s as easy to make two as it is making one.

Thanks for viewing my projects

These are very nice. I could see making one as a Christmas present for my mom.

Nice carrying basket…and the cedar should not make it very heavy to carry

Very cool, Guy.
The first Trug I’ve seen as well.
I like the decorative plugs too.
