Haven’t started the box yet SandyK. It’s starting to feel like fall here in Maine. My goal was to clean out the garage so that I can get the cars into it this winter. After three days I’m about 60% there. So much stuff and I’m one of those people who look at a rake and say, “I can’t get rid of this”. Even though I’ve found 4 others. On the upside. I have relocated almost all of my dozens of wrenches, sockets, pliers, etc. It’ll be nice to have a 1/2” socket again when I need one instead of making due with pliers.

I finally ran out of room in my old garage. Too many tools and wood. Just poured a new 20×40’ slab for the new shop. I know how you feel about not being able to get rid of stuff…...you can always use it for something! It’s almost like Christmas when you start finding stuff again. I have already purchased things twice because I forgot I already had one…..

I was curious about your wood pellet box because I was thinking about making one also, but as a base for an entertainment center. I was going to make it top-loading on each end, with the top center being used to set the TV and stereo on somehow. Probably some shelves that just sit on top. On the bottom box I want to make a door opening where I could fit in the metal bucket and dispense the pellets into the bucket with some sort of sliding thing, like a corn or feed dispenser. I am still drawing it out on paper so I don’t wreck the wood. If I ever get my drawing done I will post it. Thanks for your reply.

Mine is for my sister and fairly simple. It will be on the end of a couch so will look like an end table. I plan on making it about the height and length of the side arm of the couch and about a foot in thickness. My plan is to have 2-3 narrow raised panels on the sides and a raised panel on the ends. The top will look like an end table top but will have hinges. She wants it in oak. I’ll line it with 1/2” plywood and put a large scoop in it.

BTW. My shop is upstairs in the garage. The lower level is for cars but I have mostly automotive and metalworking tools in it. But it tends to be a catchall for stuff.
