Simple totes

Some simple totes made from knotty pine and 2×6’s, ripped down to 3/8”. Assembled with an 18 gauge crown moulding stapler.

The larger of the two is unfinished, the smaller was torched and coated with a couple coats of wipe-on poly.

Thanks for looking, comments/suggestions welcome!

very nice! I like the way the torched one looks. Any consideration to a stackable version?

Thanks for the comments-

Tony I love these cause they’re so versatile… whether its potting plants for the wife or carrying Cornhole bags to a tailgate.

RockyTopScott no glue, just two staples on each end. I also reinforced the bottom slats with small 5/8” brads coming in from the side.

ratchet I thought about it… just haven’t figured it out yet!

Those make wonderful gift boxes at Christmas when they are filled with nuts and fruit.

Charles Good thinking… that’s what I love best about this craft- making all my gifts! I enjoy making them as much as others enjoy getting ‘em!

@Tooch—Nice simple crates, and we always have stuff to crate. Here is an idea I tried (but didn’t perfect) to make stackable crates. You might find something in the concept that will appeal to you and make a better crate.

Great looking and well made crates. Like more the torched one. They have a lot of uses. Great job!

Stackable should be easy – two “feet” (cleats?) under the “floor” sized to fit in just between the side walls (same length as the end walls) and positioned so they just fit inside the end walls…?

Love the clean, simple design!
