These started when my son asked me to make him a beer tote. The painted totes are made from repurposed barn wood and the beer totes have packing crate sides with random lettering still intact. I used 2 layers of milk paint for the color ones followed by wax to help with the aged look. The beer totes are just waxed/ The handles are wood dowel and one handle is galvanized pipe.

Jim, it looks like you certainly had fun and were creative in your variations and designs. This posting does a nice job of showing several possibilities for this form. Nice job of photographing this project too. You might want to look at this.

Your other posted projects have a wide variety in their purpose and style. It looks like you are enjoying playing in your shop. I also liked your checkers box. You seem to have a knack for innovative designs. You might enjoy perusing this for other ideas. Keep boxing and keep posting.

I second what Boxguy said. Some people just have it, you got it.
