If you've got scrap wood hanging around, these are the best little buggers to make with it. And super easy too. I used mine as a centerpiece, but they are perfect for organizing pens in your office, as a carry-all for an outside picnic, used in the bathroom for extra face cloths . . . the uses are endless. And what a great gift they would make. I offer a very simple tutorial on my blog, including the finish as well. Have fun making them!
