While waiting for a tote to arrive for my newly acquired Stanley 7, I decided to make one. I got a little creative and dug some wood out of the scrap bin. I used canarywood, hard maple and bloodwood. It’s not perfect, but for a first attempt I’m pleased with it.

Looks PERFECT to me, Grumpy! Love that blood wood stripe down the middle.

As it is multilayered, did you crossed the grain directions to make it more resistant to drop?

When your real tote comes, can I have that one?

Yes the layers are cross grained form the others, the Canarywood and Hard Maple that is.
