I go swimming in the bay and wanted a lock box to hold my clothes while I’m out there. This thing changed my life. All my other bikes are now neglected. It’s made of plate-joined, scrap cherry wood with a polyurethane finish.
The next basket was a birthday present I made for the wifey. It’s made of redwood and luan strips on a pine base with a poly and varnish finish. It’s really light and sturdy and she is stoked.
