I found some plans for a cool toy box for my 2 year old I’d like to build. It was off of a site called rogue engineer.
I do have a few questions… it calls for the box portion to by plywood (which I’m fine with) but they call it sandply. What is sandply? I usually go to Menards for my wood (I also have a HD here). I’ve gotten the 5 green stripe nicer construction plywood and the double sided oak plywood for projects, but not sure what this sandply is.
Also, at the corners of the box, they don’t use any trim or solid wood to hide the ply endgrain – I’d like to make it look a little neater than that. I am guessing if I bevel the verticle edges to make a 45 the veneer would chip out and it’d look poor, right? The only thing I can think of other than filling the edge and painting it (or using edge banding) is to have a 1×1 or something be the corner piece and have the ply butt up to that on both sides of the corner.
heres a link to the project. Doesn’t have to be anything exotic – he’s 2 and it will likely take one heck of a beating through the years. :)
