Classic style that will still work well today. Good project to “recharge” you woodworking interest.

I like it, I’ll bet my wife wants one for the porch, probably get a flower pot or two in it.

Really like the sanded finish, wish I had thought of something similar when putting together my toolbox.

JSan, there is nothing wrong with a basic project to sort of get things going and get you back in the shop and going again. Great idea. You might consider running the shoulder of the end pieces down even with the sides.

Just as a thought, this is a shop project you might want to think about sometime. It uses some similar techniques.
