Cladding for outdoor storage bench

Postby Sakura_Meg » Mon Jun 21, 2021 4:37 pm


We are in the middle of building two outdoor storage benches. Inside the benches will be those plastic keter storage boxes. We have constructed the frame but i am looking for advice on what material to use to clad the outside of the frame and the lid (seat).

We were thinking marine ply maybe for the seat but i'm confused by the options for the outside that aren't pallet wood.

Our priority is to keep it fairly low cost whilst being strong enough to withstand the elements.

This image is similar to what we have in mind
