Sand Box with lid seats!

Submitted by Kabarie on Thu, 05/30/2013 - 18:01

I put a weekend project because I took the time to paint. I also used 2x8's for the sides so to account for the difference in measurements...Long sides stayed the same at 47 1/2", however, for the shorts sides, because of the extra almost 2"'s on either end, I cut them at 45" and the lid 8 ft 1x4's were just cut in half so measured 48".

Also, on the arms for the seat...I got a little crazy excited with my Kreg Jig...I love those pocket holes but probably just should have screwed the seat onto

I had seen an image with the cut outs on the lid so took a bowl, did my own measurements and used them for handles instead of purchasing more hardware. Kids love it! Thanks for the plan!!
