Sapele deck box

This project is elegant and multi-functional, as it can be used as both a deck box and a bench. The builder used sapele, which looks great and is well suited for outdoor use. Other wood options include white oak, mahogany, ipe or cedar. The box would also work well as a toy chest or blanket chest indoors.

With routed mortises and other time-honoured joinery, this deck box is built to last so it will enhance the look of your outdoor space for years to come.

Build an elegant end table

Templates and jigs are the key to tackling the different curves on this cherry table. The builder, David Bedrosian, chose a size of 29″ by 21″ for the top of this table, but you could scale it up if you want to make a coffee table.

Gently flared legs and a single inlay strip on the top add a touch of elegance to the table.
