Building a Garden Storage Chest Box | The Carpenter’s Daughter

I’ve always wanted to make my own shed, but as I’ve never done it before, I decided to start small by replacing our broken plastic garden chest.

This time, I worked it out as I went along and made it at home instead of my Dad’s woodyard. By doing this, I made a handful of mistakes, but I learnt new things from them, so here’s how I got on.

I was also able to speed up the build thanks to Evolution kindly gifting me a mitre saw and stand. *This is NOT sponsored in any way.

    I'm going to make a storage box like this, but it's an industrial crate at the moment. I want to make the lid out of sanded and treated pallet boards. I want the lid to be waterproof so will need to use some sort of sealent between the board. Any ideas what's best? Maybe just clear silicone?

    Little tip make a L shaped corners and fix on after you have finished all the cladding ,that way you will not see ends of the cladding.

    Always enjoy your videos. One bit of advice from an American slow your speech down a little when doing the narration its hard for us to understand with your accent, or proper English as you Brits like to say. Have a great week.
