Flower Box

Some tools you hide back in the shed once you’re done using them, so they don’t clutter up the garden. But this handcrafted tote box carries enough rustic charm that you might just find yourself leaving it out where people can see. Craftsman Beau Lyday builds each one from solid wood with faceted outer panels, and finishes them with durable milk paint, but he also understands that he is building a working tool. The crates are built for strength and long enough to carry tools or even potted plants in need of transplanting. The removable handle does double duty as a welded steel garden rake. Any tool needs occasional care, and this box maintains its appearance best if given an occasional rub of wax to resist stains and water spots. If cared for well, this crate might just carry you through years of gardening to come. Rake made in China; tote handmade in Valdese, North Carolina.
