DIY Garden Storage Box – Waterproof with Felted Hinged Lid!

DIY Garden Storage Box – Waterproof with Felted Hinged Lid!

Here, I decided to build a DIY garden storage box for the garden to replace our broken plastic garden chest box. It’s in the style of a mini shed with lap panels and a felt hinged lid top and handle to make it a waterproof outdoor storage box, too!

This mini shed style lap panel DIY chest box build is to store Amazon parcels while we’re not in, or if we don’t hear the doorbell.

I was also able to speed up the build thanks to Evolution kindly gifting me a mitre saw and stand. *This is NOT sponsored in any way: http://www.evolutionpowertools.com/uk/

    My vote is with you…

  2. Shaun Reed on January 12, 2022 at 3:22 pm

    Great job and inspiring. I should of made one for my son’s room rather than buying one. Saying that for Β£30 it’s rock solid and covered in a nice material.

  3. Paul Kinsella on January 12, 2022 at 3:23 pm

    Great storage box 😁

  4. Keith Barratt on January 12, 2022 at 3:23 pm

    Hi Vikkl, love your videos, very informative.Triton do an excellent pocket hole jig and if you look carefully on eBay you will get one for about Β£54 + postage new.

    Great video and fab little build! Loved Hans cam and I saw you using a garden kneeling pad! Didn’t think of using one of those! Thanks for sharing Vikkie! πŸ‘πŸŒ²πŸ¦ŠπŸŒ²

    Little tip make a L shaped corners and fix on after you have finished all the cladding ,that way you will not see ends of the cladding.

  8. Dylan Griffith on January 12, 2022 at 3:27 pm

    Nice box. πŸ˜€

  9. bob smith on January 12, 2022 at 3:28 pm

    Always enjoy your videos. One bit of advice from an American slow your speech down a little when doing the narration its hard for us to understand with your accent, or proper English as you Brits like to say. Have a great week.

  10. almagill on January 12, 2022 at 3:28 pm

    That came together right nice!

    BTW, pop in tothe Wood Club UK facebook group. Pretty decent shower of folk, all different skill levels and backgrounds, so it’s a good place to get answers, tips, etc

  11. Jesse Mendez on January 12, 2022 at 3:29 pm

    Cute chest, uhh box. Lol. When you say chest it sounds cool but when I say chest it seems to give a different meaning. lol Thought I’d add, Love the dance at the end. Cheers!

  12. V JC on January 12, 2022 at 3:30 pm

    Very nice. Think I’ll go take a safety class on using table saws. Can’t finish most of my projects without one…so appreciate ur videos n keep on dancing!

  13. Paul Lockwood on January 12, 2022 at 3:31 pm

    Great job Vikki. We all learn a lot on the first time we do things, there always seems to be a better way of doing things, we just don’t see it first time. As the lid only opens so far, you could attach an old rope inside on the top frame and lid so it cannot open too far and cause any damage to the hinges etc.
    Well done!

  14. Kevin Woods Workshop on January 12, 2022 at 3:31 pm

    Looks great! Well done.

  15. Anthony Green on January 12, 2022 at 3:31 pm

    Thanks for the video. I got stuck with felting the top and this was the help I needed.

  16. Mark N on January 12, 2022 at 3:32 pm

    If you ever make another box like this one, consider adjusting the height to allow for FULL pieces of siding. You could do this by changing the exposure (siding overlap) or adjusting the height up or down.

  17. Kenneth Peters on January 12, 2022 at 3:32 pm

    That box will last long long longger then that Plastic one. Great work, an say Hi , to Dad an Doggyy , Love your Videos. Your dad has done a Great job teach you.

  26. John Elliott on January 12, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    Nice Wooden Chest box. Hans is good job for camera-dog. : )

  27. loxxxton poxxxton on January 12, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    That box could contain a bomb blast! Nice work but most importantly whats the doggles name?

  28. Badger Workshop on January 12, 2022 at 4:01 pm

    Looks great, so much better than the plastic one. Looking forward to seeing the shed build. I am about to start building my new workshop.

  30. Mr M on January 12, 2022 at 4:04 pm

    Nice and well on your way to the shed build. First house i owned had (already built) x2 metal square tube framed and timber cladded sheds. Things were almost bomb proof. Interested if costs are higher with mats and welder rental?

  31. Kayinfso Here on January 12, 2022 at 4:05 pm

    Terrific job, from the middle of California!

  32. Genial Harry Grout on January 12, 2022 at 4:05 pm

    Nice storage box. Have you considered using pocket holes when building? If you don’t already own one, kreg pocket hole jig is a great tool for doing this, although you might be able to find cheaper alternatives. I own a basic kreg mini which works well for what I need Also are you aware of Ana White’s website, ana-white.com?

  33. michael adams on January 12, 2022 at 4:05 pm

    it is hans approved. awesome.

  34. Ian Watson on January 12, 2022 at 4:06 pm

    I’m going to make a storage box like this, but it’s an industrial crate at the moment. I want to make the lid out of sanded and treated pallet boards. I want the lid to be waterproof so will need to use some sort of sealent between the board. Any ideas what’s best? Maybe just clear silicone?

  35. ranjan chatterjee on January 12, 2022 at 4:07 pm

    You are awesome… Brilliant have so much ideas for creating new things… Love your work…

  36. Thom spillane on January 12, 2022 at 4:07 pm

    Nicely done really like this look. Keep up the awesome work. Take care

  37. B Scooter on January 12, 2022 at 4:08 pm

    Just a point to note for the future, a number of the felt adhesives state that they don’t bond well directly to wood. Some are designed for over felting πŸ‘πŸ». Thinking of your future shed project as you mentioned it here

  38. RumMonkeyable on January 12, 2022 at 4:12 pm

    Vikki, you do amazing projects in limited work space! Very inspirational! Any plans for a proper woodworking shed with work space & storage? Is there enough room to build a shed in your garden? Use your existing garage? The outdoor storage cabinet is really, really nice! Are the wood slats cedar? Thanks for another great video!

  39. cmal90 on January 12, 2022 at 4:14 pm

    6:24 next video project confirmed πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Hanz’s kennel πŸ‘πŸ» nice job will be doing something similar for my outdoor furniture cushions.

  40. Gary Douglass on January 12, 2022 at 4:14 pm

    Mint job πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ I love your indoor workshop haha your next challenge is to build an outdoor workshop and storage for your mounting supply of tools haha. Well deserved though the tools you get sent. Well done πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‰

  41. Shopdogworkshop on January 12, 2022 at 4:14 pm

    Get yourself a brad nailer, much easier. Good looking storage box though. πŸ‘

  42. Split10 on January 12, 2022 at 4:15 pm

    Good job!
    Nice to hear you mention the idea you got from Colin Furze….I thought his shed build was excellent.

  43. J K on January 12, 2022 at 4:15 pm

    β€œSpacing jig off Colin furze” πŸ˜‚ gotta love mr furze

  44. MG Makes on January 12, 2022 at 4:16 pm

  45. Christopher Prowse on January 12, 2022 at 4:17 pm

    Love your video’s great work! I think its time for a shop πŸ™‚

  46. Kevin Butchart on January 12, 2022 at 4:17 pm

    You can also use old pallets to make a storage box, i did for a mate of mine and also made room for some flower baskets at one end…your doing a great job, keep up the good work! 😎

  47. Mr Geoffrey Smith on January 12, 2022 at 4:18 pm

    Much fabber than the plastic shite. Well done πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  48. Lee G on January 12, 2022 at 4:18 pm

    Brilliant! I am making a summerhouse/gym in my garden and I am powering it with solar. I have been trying to workout a design to have all my equipment such as batteries ect stored outside and this has given me ideas! Ty πŸ™‚

  49. Hammer128 on January 12, 2022 at 4:20 pm

    Look at you, new tool belt and a new saw. Starting to look very professional there! All kidding aside I noticed that your confidence level seems to be getting better and better. Really enjoying watching your videos and seeing how you skills are progressing. Isn’t it nice when a project comes together perfectly (within 1mm). Keep up the good work.

  50. Flyfifer on January 12, 2022 at 4:21 pm

    Your dog is adorable. These saw horses look seriously sturdy. Good video
