How to make a patio deck box!

In this video I go through the construction of a simple outdoor storage solution for all of the pool accessories. This deck box is made from treated wood and cedar which will hold up very nicely outdoors. If you've watched any Shop Nation videos you know I'm kind of a nut about organization and that extends beyond my shop! Having a single place for all of the pool crap and the pool robot is AWESOME! As a bonus this box doubles as a table for entertaining (chips, dips, margarita machine, etc). If you are in need of some outdoor storage you have to check this out!



Key Takeaways


- Design your box to be critter-proof! Including bugs!


- Keep in mind the surface you will place this box on. My patio floor is sloped so I built in the caster heights so that the top of the box would sit level.


- Design in future capacity! The amount of "stuff" you have today will grow with time - it's a law.
