Sandpit with fold out lid into seats

The original plan was to make a solid cover to keep the Pets out, but why not add a fold out seat for the kiddies

 

Using 200mmx50 Treated pine sleepers for the box 

150mx25mm Treated pine planks for the lid.

All materials from the one stop shop Bunnings

Looks great @LePallet. Thanks for sharing.

 

Have you been able to get back on the tools?

That's fantastic, Rylie. I'm sure you're getting stronger every day. The hard part must be being patient and not over-doing it. 

 

You must have a lot of plans for new projects in your head! Looking forward to seeing what you get up to in the coming months as you slowly get back into it.

Hi there @kayla2 

I used 50mm x 200 treated pine sleepers for base. Roughly 2.1m x1.7m 

$23 for a 2.1m Plank I believe 

25mm x 170mm treated pine plinths from Bunnings. 1.7m long X 16 pieces
