Thanks so much for this article, Makes it look so easy.
The holes in the bottom of the tote look to be about 1/4 inch and there are many of them,
but can't see the holes in the lid, what size are the top holes and about how many did you
drill.
Thanks

Hi Louis,

The holes in the top are made using the smallest bit in my set, which is 1/16th. As for how many holes I drilled, it was easily over a hundred. I was looking for a mesh type feel for the lid, thus lots and lots of tiny holes. I hope this helps!
