    Cool video. Question did you waterproof the outside also?

    That turned out pretty sweet! I like the idea of building up the sides using pocket screws. Another reason to buy the system I guess…

    This video came at the right time. I was looking to make a outside firewood storage box. I think with a few modifications to the bottom/floor, your idea's will work superbly. A far easier way and less costly than what I was designing. Great video

    Does the lid offer protection against the rain?

    Hi Jeff! We loved watching this tutorial but we're a little challenged when it comes to the exact supply list! Our organization, The Food School, a non-profit here in Fort Collins, is partnering with a local elementary school with an already established garden. We're writing a grant proposal for a project to build 6 of your boxes so each grade can have their own supply box, equipment, books, etc. all aligned to the school curriculum we've written. Eagle scouts will be building the boxes. Could you please email us or post here an exact list of ALL supplies/materials so we can price everything out accurately for the grant proposal? Many many thanks! Julie Reed, Executive Director (oz.exists@yahoo.com) and Jennifer Todd, Education Director

    Going to try tomorrow.  You make it look so easy, maybe a couple days for me to do.

    This is a great video. I have seen it many times and am getting ready to build the same storage bench. Thanks again.

    This is a horrible design, Screwing into the wood slats below it for structure? Frame it properly and your slats should just be used for decorative, not structure.. Very bad design… I am sure it works but the face of it has 50 screws that are viable and are not aligned in any way you have a Kreg pocket hole tool use it to hide all those ugly screws..

    If you want to stain this, would you do it before or after putting it together? I'm gonna try to tackle this over the weekend. Wish me luck.
