I can think of a lot of uses for that: Awesome tool tote, gift box, Easter egg hunting, and a whole varieties of others. A very nice delightful project.

Looks great, id be interested to know how you made the curved handle and also how exactly did you mortise or attach it to the staunchions.
Great looking work

The handle floats. It is trapped in place. The arch in the handle follows the natural grain. It was just kind of hacked out in a few minutes.

Yer ok , great. I have never thought or seen the floating handle idea, I’ll adopt that on the crates I build if you wouldn’t mind
