    Nicely shaped and styled. Too bad about the blow-out...

    Sometimes what I do is drill the hole first and then shape the tote around the hole.

    Otherwise, I drill the hole half way then turn the tote over and drill the other half. You might think you'll miss the hole but with a line drawn on the outside (where the hole should track) and some careful adjustment you'll find you can hit the other hole pretty well.

    A drill bit can wander quite a bit in that length. I screwed up a few totes before I tried the other approaches I mentioned.

    Drill the hole a LARGE diameter then glue in another hunk of that wood or an opposing color/contrast of wood then do it again Sam!!!!!

    Thanks all for the comments, Mike i had come across your learning experience somewhere else when i was searching for a solution...of course after the experience i had. Aint hindsite a perfect science.

    Vaughn and Jonathan I plan to make it look exactly like that by doing something similar to what you described Jon. I aint gonna waste all that wood time and effort at this stage. The perfectionist in me will have to give way to the pragmatist in me.
    cheers

    Hey Rob, the pragmatist vs the perfectionist. Sounds like the same ongoing conflict in my head on most any project.
