Storage Chest Part 3: Basic Model - Adding the Trim, Top and Finish

So far, we created the ends, front, and back assemblies for our storage chest. Then, we attached those assemblies together, added the interior pieces, and put on all four sides, plus the bottom. If you missed the last sections, you can watch them at LowescreativeIdeas.com/ShopClass. In this video we'll be creating a basic storage chest. First create a top lip for the side pieces. Take a quarter round and cut to length. Cut a 45 degree angle on the ends of the quarter round on the miter saw. Do this for all 4 pieces, 2 shorter ones for the sides, and 2 longer ones for the front and back. Place the pieces inside and attach with glue and nails. Next, we need to design the top. Cut the top from a piece of plywood on the table saw. Create an edge for the top by cutting the nosing. Again, cut 45 degree angles on the miter saw, glue and attach with nails. Attach the hinge filler plate with glue and nails. Begin filling the nail holes in the chest with a paintable wood filler by using a putty knife. Sand the entire chest with a fine grit sandpaper. It is now time to paint or stain your chest. Be sure to prime before you paint! Finally, attach the top of the chest. Measure the hinge to 32 inches and cut down with a hack saw. Attach to the lid and the hinge filler plate with screws.
