Draw a diagram of the future wooden chest, and then transfer the dimensions of future walls to the chipboard sheet. A total of two longitudinal and two transverse walls, which will need to be cut with the help of an electrolobster.


From the edge of the transverse sidewall, retreat by 10 cm and drill the hole in this place. A total of four holes should turn out. The distance between them must be the same. In the same way, drill four holes on each side of the transverse sidewalls. Then put four sidewalls on a flat place and with the help of screwdriver and self-cutters connect them


Now you need to make markup on chipboard and cut the bottom of the chest. The outer faces of the bottom must necessarily coincide with the resulting dimensions of the side walls. Holes on the bottom are removed in the same way as in the sidewalls. Attach the bottom to the side walls.


On the chipboard, mark the dimensions of the side walls. Their height should be three times less than those that have already been fastened. For example, the cover should be only one third of the height of the chest itself, and the length should remain the same. Cut the sidewalls.


The size of the cap top is similar to the bottom. It will also need to drill four holes and connect to the sidewalls.


To obtain a smooth and smooth surface of the edge of the chest, grind with a special grinder. If it is not available, you can use sandpaper. Now connect the bottom and top of the chest into a single unit, and on the inside of the rear sides, mark the seats where the loops will be attached. Make a hole and attach them.



gap remains on the front side of the loops, which can be removed by means of a seal placed on the leading edge of the product. This will not just get rid of the unbeautiful gap, but also reduce noise when opening and closing the chest lid.


Treat all sides of the chest with primer in two layers. The application of the last layer is possible only after the previous layer is completely drying. Go through the grinder, then cover them with wood varnish and let the finished product dry.
