I did a near direct copy of the tool trugs from Jamie and Ana using some 1/2" birch plywood and 1/2" craft wood from Home Depot. I was really happy with the ipswich pine stain that darkened the wood and gave it less of an unfinished look.
Built from Plan(s)
Maybe $20 total for both trugs. I bought some little stain and sample paints when I could have just used what I had laying around, and some of the wood was scrap from other projects so it's hard to say.
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Minwax Ipswich Pine stain on the main body, Minwax Provincial on the bottoms. The paint colors are mostly Martha Stewart Living from Home Depot samples, the only two names I remember are Cornbread and Barn Red.
