Hi everyone,

I just completed an outdoor storage box. 64" by 12" and 10" high.

3/4" pine sanded outdoor ply. Pine trim.

Lid will be the 3/4" ply. Will screw into 1/2" pine trim on the box lip.

My concern is will screws hold in the 3/4 ply? I plan to use gate hinges.

Thanks

Very good idea, thanks. I think I will use screws and then if they fail use your suggestion.

Thanks very much

One other thought. If you do go the machine screw route, be sure to use a washer on the inside so the nut doesn't tear out the wood.

Coarse thread screws I will get.

Here is a picture, maybe. The lid bowes a little. I'm planning on two or three gate hinges. I can get a SS piano hinge, more expensive. Think I should? Lastly, if it still bowes a little after the hinge install I will install a latch on front.
