How to Build an Outdoor Storage ChestThe summer is almost over. School is starting. Fall is approaching. It's time to clean up. Whether it's pool toys or some decorations you'd rather not bring inside, an outdoor storage chest is usually your best bet. Now, you COULD go and buy a cheap plastic one, but...why? Plastic chests degrade, fade, and after one season never close right. And, let's face it, they're ugly!
If you have time for just ONE wood working project AND need a quality storage solution, then build yourself a hardwood storage chest! Sturdy. Good-looking. Long-lasting. A chest made of Ipe, Cumaru, or Tigerwood will be something you can actually pass on to future generations!
Advantage Ipe Decking™ for Kayak LaunchProject Helps Disabled Veterans Enjoy the Roanoke River in Virginia.
Sometimes there are projects that deserve more than simple recognition; they deserve to be praised. The Buggs Island Universally Accessible Launch was built using Advantage Ipe so anyone who suffers from a disability can enjoy kayaking in Virginia's Roanoke River. Advantage Ipe is naturally slip-resistant and gives excellent traction when pushing the kayak down the launch. For disabled veterans, this kind of activity is a perfect way to achieve their recreational therapy goals and enjoy the outdoors. See more pictures from this very special Ipe decking project.
According to Scott Murray, the Upper Reach Regional Director, "The non-skid works great so far. It has been under water daily and I have walked on it soaking wet without problem. Thanks for a great product!"
