Step 1: Cut the Parts
Step 2: Build the Box
Step 3: Paint and Add Handles
Use a circular saw or jigsaw to cut 1x4s to size. We cut two pieces 14 in. long for the front and back, and four pieces 4 in. long to create the ends and partitions.
Assemble the outer frame of the box, using glue and dowels (or finish nails.) Glue and nail the inner partitions in place, spaced at equal intervals.
Glue and nail on the 1/4-in. plywood base. Lightly sand the box, then apply one coat of primer and two coats of high gloss paint. Add rope handles for a decorative touch.
