A lady asked if I could build one of these after it was on Facebook a couple months ago. So today was her day. It’s 8 feet by 6 feet and 12 inches tall when closed. Made of pressure treated pine.

If anyone wants to build one, go to Ana White.

Thanks for reading and all comments are welcome

I forgot to mention that this is a covered sandbox. The top folds up for seating.

I think you should fill the center with sand. At least that is what crossed my mind when I first saw your post.

Cool Monte. I was just about to say, what is it.

-- Bill M. I love my job as a firefighter, but nothing gives me the satisfaction of running my hand over a project that I have built and just finished sanding.
