Taking out the trash and chopping firewood can be two chores no one really enjoys. And most people do not want the sight of trash cans and firewood to be part of their backyard landscape. Pressure-treated Southern Pine offers an answer to both concerns. Use it to build a handy storage unit to organize the woodpile and conceal the trash containers. This project plan will show you how.

From the outside, it looks like a typical blanket chest. But with a pull of the two knobs on the front, you will see why it is the perfect backdoor storage solution.

The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra from the Woodsmith Magazine web site.
