This easy-to-assemble tote goes together quickly. And the bent wood handle offers a chance to try a new technique.
Boxes are always great projects. But add a handle to a box and you have a tote that can be used in a variety of ways, from a handy supply caddy for crafts to a picnic basket to a gift box filled with goodies. With this many uses and the simple construction, you may want to make more than one. The box is just four sides and a bottom joined with rabbets and screws. The real challenge is making the handle. It uses a bent lamination technique that incorporates a shop-made jig and thin strips of wood. The result is a handle with a smooth, graceful curve that will surely be noticed.
