I call this a boat box because its like what people with boats keep on the dock to store things in. I however, do not have a boat but I do have a deck. So we use this for storage of cushions or whatever you want to keep out of the weather. Also doubles as a lot of additional seating or a coffee table. I think its 7’ long.

..I added a pic of the top. The wood is nothing special but it is very functional and useful and I like how the colors came out using the contrast.

Is the side panel one solid piece with routed rabbits or pieced together sticks? I like the looks and would love to copy the idea if you don’t mind

Looks good. I need to build something like that. What kind of weather protection did you use?

I can see me building something like this as a birthday gift for my sister to put on her deck. Thanks for the idea!

anobium, one continuous piece. its the sheet bead board you can get at Lowes or Home Depot. The finish on the top is a couple of coats of polyshades. Its held up really well. It gets snowed on and rained on. Sits on the deck year round and still looks like that. It is shaded and rarely gets sun on it so I cannot speak to that.
