« Part 18: Pallet Mower Shed Part 19 of Working with recycled timber series Part 20: Pine and Jarrah Boxes making the frames »

I was trying to tidy up again as our house is getting lots of clutter, mainly from me bringing home stray pieces of timber I find.

I thought I had better look very closely at my stash of recycled timbers.

I had heaps so I pulled out about 28 pieces of various lengths and dimensions

I ran them through on the table saw to true them up and then commenced thicknessing them.

I ended up with enough stock to make the boxes.

I then decided to add panels in the sides from more recycled bits I had.

These I simply split on the table saw and then thicknessed them

The two boxes I wanted to make were L 600mm H 400mm W 450mm

The idea was to sit in my ute behind the front seats so I could put tools and stuff in there and get them out easily later.

I didn’t want a full width box as it would be OK but if I needed to use one of the back seats it was just a matter of removing one box and putting it on the tray.
