My grand daughter turns 3 this month and my daughter was going to buy her a sandbox which cost over $200. plus shipping and had to put together. She ask me if I could make it cheaper. I looked at the picture and said yes. so for lest then $70.00 here is what she got. I change a couple things to make it higher and added some braces to make it stronger. Its made of treated wood 1xs and stained cherry. NO shipping and NO assembly required.

how long did you wait to stain the treated wood? Or was it already dry?
