These are stackable totes made from some scrap plywood. The inspiration came from here:

I decided, though, to play with my new stacked dado cutter and rabbeted the sides and bottoms to make a stronger joint, instead of a simple butt joint. They are only glued together.

The boxes are about 14×10x3. The slot in the middle allows for the handle to slide in between another so that they stack.

A pretty easy project, and really my first attempt at joinery. Also a fantastic use for scrap plywood!

I made one something like these a while back. I like your stacking idea.
