Tool tote from leftover barn wood. Glued and 16d nails. Finished with Briwax. Briwax helps make the cut edges/ ends look the same color as the uncut edges/ ends.

Simple and utilitarian, great combo. It will bring a smile everytime you use it.
Great job at making the cut edges look old and weathered. Thanks for the tip.
