Anyone have ideas for making a potato & onion bin?

You don't see these out here in California, but I would love to have a potato and onion bin. They are too expensive online. Anyone make their own out of a wooden box or something? I am dying to have one.

I don't know how to make one, but maybe you could ask for one on Freecycle?? I sure see lots of them at yard sales around here for about $5. Maybe try Craigs List,too.

Hi, this is an old post, but I think I found this guy on Plaxo in 2008 and he said he like woodworking, so I think he's stilll around.
Can't hurt to email him. All he asked in exchange for his plan was that you send a pic of your finished project.
good luck

Here's another idea. My friend uses a big clay flower pot for potatoes kinda unusual but it works for her and doesn't look bad just sitting in a corner of her kitchen.
