Im really confused with the cut list and diagram. It says to cut out of 1x3's pieces of wood that are 2" for the stiles. no where does it say 21/2" and then the cut list on the bottom of page says they ar 3/4" when the wood is 1". Can you please explain and clear up before I start cutting. Thanks

Response from the Lowe's Creative Ideas TeamBy The LCI TeamJanuary 16, 2013
We think you're confused by the nominal vs. actual dimensions of the boards. Here is some clarification: boards are cut from the tree in full dimension. A 1-in thick board is cut 3-in wide, a "1-in x 3-in". The size of the rough board is called it’s “nominal dimension” and is how it is labeled in the store. The board is then milled to have all smooth surfaces and dried, resulting in a board that is 3/4-in thick and 2 1/2-in wide. This is the actual dimension. It is much easier to reference the board as a “1 by 3” than a “three quarter by two and one half”. So the board is 2 1/2-in wide, it is cut to 2-in wide using a table saw.

We hope this clears the issue up!

During the videos, you use certain tools that the average person would not normally use that often. For example, the corner clamps used, or the various types. Could more time be spent giving some info on these tools? Or at least at the bottom after materials needed. Availability, cost, etc.

Thanks for your question!
Yes, you should be able to make the cut using that tool with the jigsaw handle attachment and blade. You could use a band saw as well.
You could even use a compass saw or coping saw if you didn't have any of these tools, but it would take much longer.

Hi Treva -
These videos will remain after they post. You can finish the class at your own pace. We post a new video every week, but do not take down the previous one. You can even wait until all steps post if you don't have the time right now.
Hope you give the class a chance!

Why don't you have the tool list, lumber list, and the hardware list so that they can be printed out without having to print everything on the screen and then its so small you need a magnifying glass to be able to read it. Come on set up the pages to be printable.

Do you still sell kits for the storage chest? How can I go about getting the material for the storage chest? I have never purchased any lumber from Lowe's. I just wanted the kit so it was easier to build with some of the cuts already done to spec. Thanks

Can you provide more information about the following items?
1 (48-inch) continuous hinge
2 lid supports
What is the width of the hinge? 1 1/16 , 1 1/2 ?
And for the lid supports, what would you use for these if this was to become a children's toy box?

Herman,
The problem you're experiencing is probably due to the video playing faster than your network connection buffers. If you try letting the video load completely in YouTube before playing that should solve the problem. Thanks for your comment!
