I have been building the wooden baskets for several years. My wife recently started a small company that sells Herbal teas and has been using them to store and move her materials. I came up with this idea to help keep them organized. The base and baskets are made from reclaimed pallets and the top is reclaimed red oak. (She doesn’t know that her entire birthday present came from the dumpster at work.)
I pocket screwed the base and did a little joinery for the top.
