I made this for my wife a few years ago. I used dowel construction for the handles (my 1st attempt). She loves it.

Well done with the handles .Yes, I too love the slots in the bottom. I bet they are greatly appreciated at clean up time!

Very good garden tool box. Your first attempt at dowel construction is remarkably good. What are the dimentions of the box? Why it is called tote?Sharad

not sure on the dimensions as I built it 2 years ago and I call it a tote because my wife can tote around her tools.

This is a top of the line tool tote. I make a rustic style that would be considered bottom of the line. Well done.

Your wife is a lucky lady!!
I love this … and may have to ask Russel to make me one (if you don’t mind) ... but I would use it as a very cool planter box (-vbg-)
