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.
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
Hi do you have a plan for this sandpit. It’s exactly what we are looking for👍
Let me extend a very warm welcome to the Workshop community. It's wonderful to have you join us and we look forward to seeing you build your own sandpit based on the inspiration from @woodalwaysworks.
