    Build a Deck Storage Box

    more on woodworking safety

    Tools and Materials

    Here's another great beginner woodworking project from the folks at Lowe's. This deck storage chest can easily be built in a weekend, features dual lids that double as seats, and goes a long way toward cleaning up the bric-a-brac on your outdoor living area. For a detailed plan and materials list, have a look at Lowe's Shop Class website, or just follow along with the videos below.

    By the way, don't be scared off by the fact that the instructor uses a tablesaw in these videos. You could also use a conventional circular saw with a straightedge clamped to the wood you're cutting. Or, you could have your lumberyard pre-rip the wood to the proper width if that's easier. There's usually a small charge involved, but it's not a wallet-buster.

    A used wood pallet can turn

    mike kieve writes: A used wood pallet can turn to a unique or perhaps more sophisticated cabinet just as this. But, if that is only the idea that have knowledge of, surely I will make a type of craftsman door similar to the one I seen at http://caldwells.com/. But sadly I can't, and ended up buying new one every time we have broken and unrepairable home parts.,,,,

    Thanks for sharing the post..

    I have always liked storage

    Edward Thirlwall writes:

    I have always liked storage benches which I often use for domestic purposes especially in the living room. I like their main feature which is to act as a seat while providing quite an ample amount of storage. That fact is really beneficial to conceal in all the mess like scraps of newspapers and magazines, and not forgetting housing all the remote controls and prevent them from going missing again. They can also be customized according to your own preferences with colored cushions or patterned seat covers which make them very personal.

    sprucing up your deck

    Boone Lumber writes:

    This chest is really going to function in many ways. You an even build one to look like a seat but with a storage space underneath. A lot of materials can be used in making your decks look even spiffier. http://www.bclumberstore.com
