More important than the wood project, the time spent with your son. Way to go dad!

Cool storage solution. Perhaps my kids would be interested in having some of those. Into the favorites it goes.

Very cool…I’ll need to tackle this with one of the grandkids.

Hey, I guess Ted will now have 16,001 plans available.

Great post, Steve. As an alternative to the metal hinge you could (yes I’ve tried it) put a dowel 25mm in along the door top and bottom, located into holes on the inside of the top and bottom box parts. A little trickier to assemble but worth it,perhaps.

On this one the pins are between 50 and 75mm in from the side.

These will be rugged little boxes that I predict will have long and useful lives. Good design work and well done!

Were these storage cube plans “borrowed” from Ted’s origional woodworking plans? I could of sworn he had this plan listed right between the files called Norm’s Tressel Table and the Wood Whisperer’s Cutting Boards.

Kidding, nice idea, it is fast and easy and any teen wood love to finish these in their own style.
