I was looking around the antique shops for an old box to store firewood for my family room. Couldnt find one that was fairly small, but yet sturdy. I decided to design one that would hold about two wheelbarrows full of wood. I used 3/4 inch pine panels for the sides and top. I fluted the sides to make it look like individual pine boards. I put a 3/4 inch plywoood bottom in it, added some trim, a couple of strap hinges. I left the lid hang about 1/2 inch over the front for something to grasp when lifting the lid. I have built several of these for friends. On the next one I build, I think I will use an old piece of a leather belt for a handle on the lid.
This box makes a great toy box too. Just need to add the lid safety support.
