Hey there sports fans! After a small hiatus from blogging I am back and I am stoked to share with you what I have been working on in the shop! The great folks over at Build Something.com reached out and they were interested to see what I could build using only one sheet of plywood… Challenge Accepted!
You better believe I built this awesome antique box with just ONE sheet of plywood! Plus, *spoiler alert* it has hidden storage!

So here is the deal, Kreg just released another new product that will help streamline the building process! It is called the Accu-Cut Circular Saw Track Guide . Much like the Kreg Rip-Cut Precision Circular Saw Edge Guide, it works on a track system that now allows the user to cut long angles! It has a grip pad base that is slip resistant. It can also be used in conjunction with the Rip-Cut to cut down large panels! Nice huh?
So, to kick off the release of the Accu-Cut, Kreg is holding a One Sheet Contest. Anyone can submit a project for a chance to win some amazing prizes! Seriously, check out some of these prizes!
The rules are simple, you can only use one sheet of plywood,/MDF,/particle board. You can include veneer banding and hardware, but that’s it! The contest runs until September 30th! So put on your thinking caps and start building, because this is going to be awesome!
So how do you enter? Easy. You can submit a project by uploading your project images to Kreg or posting on Instagram using the hashtag #KregOneSheetContest!
Alright, now I want to brag just a little about my one sheet project…
I recall visiting my grandparents home when I was young; they had an adorable antique box that always looked beautiful and was carefully curated with gorgeous flowing flora. (My sister would be so proud, I just used the word “flora”. Also, FYI I was recently educated that this style of antique box is often referred to as a “boot box”.) I digress… I will be the first to admit I have the blackest of thumbs. I don’t want to brag, but I have yet to meet a plant that I cannot kill. So while the vegetation was pointless endeavor, I figured I had a real shot at making my own spin on an antique “boot box”. Whilst designing said “boot box “, I decided it was missing a certain something… (No, not just real flowers.) It NEEDED something… it needed hidden storage! Obviously. There is just something about form and function aligning perfectly that makes my heart skip a beat… Screw the real plants, with hidden shoe storage I will be happy camper, crappy silk flowers and all!
So do you want to build your own Antique Boot Box turned hidden storage? Heck yes you do ! You can head over to BuildSomething.com for all the build details!
Thanks so much for tuning in and reading! I can’t wait to see what projects you come up with. Feel free to tag my on Instagram. I would love to see your creations!
