Storage Cubes - a Basic Build


Ad-free for members



In this longer video I’m back on the Basic Build series and making some simple open storage cubes. Enjoy!


Basic build videos are just that - simply constructed projects from readily available sheet materials using a minimal - and entry-level - toolset, and with each build we add a tool - or two - that grows the scope of the work we can take on.

Open cubes are a bit like building blocks for grown-ups - stack them tall to make a display tower, make them into a low unit for your TV, or step them to make a corner piece, paint them in bright colours for a kids room or have them tone with your decor, they’re a flexible and versatile solution for your changing storage needs.


And it turns out, easy to make using a minimal toolset, too, with just a little careful application.
