This is a potato and onion bin built for a friend. His instructions was it had to be classic, have a drawer for onions and taters and onions wrote not neatly on top. Last one I did was 15 years ago so I had to search for examples. I found several and combined styles to come up with this. Built with pine and stained with red oak stain. Semi gloss poly. To form the lid I used 45 degrees for the angle and divided in two and found 22.5 degrees fit perfect. I originally wanted to use peg board for ventilation but went with 1/4 inch poplar slats instead after some advice from fellow lumberjocks, Dallas and thetinman. Thanks guys!
