One of the projects that my wife wants me to tackle in the very near future is a storage box that will sit on our deck which will hold all of the various pool toys my son and his friends (not to mention us! ) will use this summer. So I put my thinking cap on and came up with the drawing you see below. I'm thinking I'm going to try my hand at making louvers, using the jig that Norm provides in his two-part "Shop Jigs" show. Both the front and the back of the box length-wise will be stationary louveres to allow for the maximum airflow through the box. The bottom will be slats that run lengthwise. I'm thinking of leaving a half-inch slat for drainage. The ends will be glued-up panels. For a nice look, I'm going to try my hand at a breadboard edging. The dimensions are shown in the picture, but I am absolutely looking for some other opinions on the design/wood choice/etc. Right now, I'm thinking about using either cypress or cedar (probably cedar). Thanks for you help!!
