My daughter in-law mailed me a clipping out of a magazine with a pic of a sailboat sandbox and asked if I could make one for my grandson. I used all Redwood and stainless screws with the black gate hinges and handles. They live on the coast at Corpus Christi, TX so we needed something that would stand the salt air. My wife sewed the canopy out of shade-cloth from the nursery and the ship’s wheel came from HD. I made it 48” wide so in would fit between the wheelwells of my pickup for transport. The first go round didn’t have the lids so we modified it to keep the cats out of the biggest litterbox they had ever seen. Was a good learning experience and I know some things I’ll do different if I build another one. Anyway-It’s my first project and hope to have many more to come.
