Step 2: Boxes assembled.  You can see I used some leftover scrap wood here.

predrill holes for basket handle

Be sure to predrill the hole for the handle about 1/2" deep.  Use a 3/4" forstner bit and make the hole centered on the board.

cutting fence pickets on miter saw

To make it easier to cut the pickets I kept the plastic wrapping on the stir sticks and cut at a 30 degree angle.

attaching fence pickets to basket

Use wood glue and 5/8" finish nails to attach the pickets.  Fill all the nail holes with wood putty and finish as desired.
