A handy and easy to make storage box for all those bits and pieces.
This handy storage box and the bowl are painted in Resene Poured Milk, the weatherboards are Resene Half Periglacial Blue and the deck is stained in Resene Woodsman Driftwood. The pots are in Resene Slipstream (large) and Resene Grey Seal.
One sheet of IBS V-Groove 9mm-thick plywood cut into: 2 pieces at 1150mm x 550mm for the front and back; 1 piece at 1200mm x 600mm for the lid; 2 x 550mm (h) x 535mm (w) making sure the lines go across the width for the ends.
Either a second sheet of grooved ply or use plain plywood: 1 piece at 1125mm x 535mm for the base. (Note that using 9mm grooved plywood rather than planks makes the storage box lighter and easier to move.)
Five 2.4m lengths of 45mm x 19mm timber for the frame cut into: 4 x 1150mm for the top and bottom, front and back; 4 x 497mm for verticals at the ends and 4 x 445mm for horizontals at the ends. Cut 2 x 575mm for the side of the lid, and one at 1200mm long for the front of the lid.
1m length of H3 treated 19mm x 90mm: 2 x 500mm for the feet. These are the only pieces that will touch any damp ground.
