Re: Sandpit. Fold Out out Seats. Close tight, Solid Top

Would love to see a picture of this when it's closed. It's a great design. We have cats and I know they would wee and poop in a sandpit but have yet to find something easy to open and close for the kids.

Do you have a photo of the sandpit in the closed position that you could share with our new member @Lori?

 

Thanks again for sharing this fantastic project and inspiring others.

I just have this picture at the moment of one recently made, didn't have any handles fitted at the time of taking the photo. I use decking for the lid/ seats mainly for strength, once closed i can stand on it and the kids can walk and jump all over it. The blocks of wood you see sticking up on the seat and below work as braces, when closed they are in contact with the sand
