The white wooden storage bench is the perfect solution. Instead of having all the toys all over the floor, they'll now be tidally put away in the storage box by building the wooden storage bench. That'll solve all your problems and create a whole heap of floor space. These are all the tools and materials required to make a kid's wooden storage bench for this particular project, we're using dowel for the feet, and this is the only piece of timber that we need to cut. The first thing to start with is to mark and measure the base, so the uprights can be fixed to it. Transfer your marks along this edge.
So when it comes to fixing it, you've got a guide as to where you need to be once you've marked out your base, it's time to fix your uprights to do that. Just run a bead of PVA glue along one edge and then use a fixing gun to secure it secure the two end pieces first, so it gives it some stability while you're putting it together. Now I'm going to fix the top to this half. This half is having a hinged top, so it doesn't need to be fixed. You can mark out a center line making sure that it still lines up when you fix it on. So it's not crooked. I've just done a basic little mark there.
So it's a guide for myself just place some PVA glue on each top, just to help secure it a little more now secure the top using a 60-ton wipe off any excess glue. Now it's time to fix the shelf, you can have it as high or as low as you like for this particular project, I'm going with the center. The easiest way to fix it in is to lay it on its side. Now that this sides finished it's time to start the storage box, so we're going to fix the front and back panel again putting some PVA glue down each edge and then fixing it with the nail gun.
Now it's time to per-drill countersink and screw it together to make it really strong and sturdy carry out the same process on the underside of the storage box going through the uprights, the kids storage box is nearly complete. We now just need to fix the lid on that will be hinged evenly spaced the hinges with the lid on top mark on the lead and the storage box. So you know where to secure it mark out where you need to per-drill and do the same for the lead, per-drill and fixing the screws securing the hinges. Don't forget when you per-drill the lid, don't go all the way through it's as easy as that.
Now, let's cut the dowel to make the feet up square off my end, so I'm going to use the set square for my desired length. Now all that's left to do is cut it before securing the feet. Make sure that you measure and Mark out where they're going to go, allowing for them to be secured from the underside, because we have to actually per-drill through the actual dowel itself, once you've actually marked out where the feet are going to go. You need to trace around the actual foot and find the center point.
So you know where to per-drill the dowel, so it's ready to be secured with the screws. As you can see, the holes went into the dowel cants Inc, the per-drilled holes, so the screws sit flush with the base, don't forget to put PVA glue on the feet before securing them on putty over all the screws. So that way, you're getting your nice flat surface, allow the putty to dry and then give it a good sand once that's all been done. All that's left to do is paint it I'm going with white, but I'm going to leave the feet natural because it goes with the style of the room that I'm putting it in. I love this wooden storage bench. It can be placed in any room.
