You will find rolling toy bin is extremely useful if you have kid(s) at home that with a lot of toys. That’s to say if you have any hope of getting ahead of clutter in a house that includes children, you’ll need useful toy storage that kids can use instinctively and that will go where the clutter is.
The size and shape of the box in this project is perfect large enough to hold most of the small toys. The wheels make it easy for children to drag the bin to the place where the mess is, another feature that helps cleanup the place.
It is good idea to color the bin in bright and lively, not only because it suits your child’s room, but also because you want to make it easier for kids to see the bin attract your kid to use it.
Woodworking Project – How to Make Rolling Toy Bin
Tools and Materials
- Circular saw or table saw
- Power drill and bits
- Measuring tape
- Carpenter’s pencil
- Palm sander
- 1 pallet
- 1 1/2” wood screws
- 3” wood screws
- 2” wood screws
- 100-grit sandpaper
- 1 quart paint
- (4) 1 1/4” casters
- Cut total of 6 floorboards with 14-inch long from the deck boards. Place two as bottom braces in parallel and separated by 7″ apart. Place the remaining four boards on top and perpendicular to the braces. Make sure that the braces are flush with the outside of the floorboards. Secure the floorboards to the stand with 1 1/2″ wood screws.
- Cut total of four 12″ studs from a stringer. Measure and mark the position of studs on each corner of the floor, 3/4 inch from each side. Screw the studs in place with 3″ wood screws driven from the underside of the floor and braces.
- Use measuring tape to measure and then mark the position of the wall panels on the outside edges and surface of all studs. The first mark is 3 1/2″ up from the bottom and the second mark up from the first by 4 1/4″.
- Now get the deck board and cut Six 14-inch-long wallboards and another six with 12 1/2-inch-long. Starting at the bottom of one wall, secure the short wallboards in place with 2″ wooden screws so that it is flush with the markings on the stud, and the end of the board is flush with the stud faces. Repeat on the opposite wall.
- Repeat the process with the long boards, overlapping the short boards. Drill pilot holes and secure the long boards to the short boards with 1 1/2″ wood screws.
- Smooth the toy box with a palm sander and paint it to the color you want. Screw a caster on each corner of the bottom.
