Build this easy one-sheet plywood storage box for firewood, blankets, or other indoor or outdoor storage. The added geometric inlay makes it a beautiful statement piece that can double as a bench or ottoman, too!

How to Build a Plywood Storage Box for Firewood

Materials and Tools:

Circular or table saw Miter saw Finish nailer and 1 1/2″ finish nails Clamps Wood glue

You can always have the hardware store cut your plywood to size for you, but if not, use a table saw or circular saw to cut your pieces to the proper dimensions.

Building Instructions

If you’re like me, you can easily make these cuts using a straight edge and a circular saw. (Mine is a little mini-one that can cut up to 1 1/4″ material and I am obsessed with it!)

After cutting all of your plywood pieces to the proper dimensions, drill 3/4″ pocket holes into the parallel sides of the two 16″ x 16″ end pieces using your KregJig.

Once you’ve drilled your pocket holes, attach the 16″ x 16″ square pieces to the 16″ x 38″ long rectangular side pieces with wood glue and 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws.
