Sandpit with fold-out seats

Amassing an Audience
Amassing an Audience

The lid of this sandpit folds out into handy bench seats when in use and keeps pets out when shut.





The project


The original plan was to make a solid cover for this sandpit to keep the pets out, but then I thought why not add a fold-out seat for the kiddies?

I used 200mm x 50mm treated Pine sleepers for the box and 150mm x 25mm treated Pine planks for the lid. All materials from the one stop shop Bunnings.
