I was working on a real simple tool tote recently and didn’t think enough about the design.

I had my two end pieces flipped vertically which would be taller than the sides and have a handle connecting them.

Once I started cutting the pins on the 1st edge of one of these, I realized it would never fly. The pins simply broke right off with a gentle tap of the finger.

So is it just a matter of making my pins wider? Or make the end boards the tail boards?

I know there are tool totes out there built like this…
