This is a newer version of a metal wrapped tool tote.  It would be real easy to make an old version of this.  I love the branch handle.

This truck is a bit worse for wear but I still love it.  Some details are still in fair shape, I love this little winter girl. 


I’ll be playing over at these websites….

  1. I love fabulous old wooden boxes and trunks too! I bought two antique wooden apple crates a few years ago at the apple farms. I wish I had gotten more. I use them for many different things! Looks cooooldy there. It is cold here too!!

    You have so many interesting things. I would like to come over and have a closer look. I have one old trunk, always wonder where its been and with who. People really should leave us some information for heaven sakes.
