What material will you use to make the storage box? Everything is possible! Make a choice based on the style you like. Are you going for natural, sleek or contemporary? We have listed 3 types of material for you:
Plywood | Natural
With plywoodyou give your wheeled storage chest a natural look, because of the wood grain that is visible, the wood colour and the smooth surface. You see more and more plain wood as part of an interior. Plywood boards can be used for countless different projects. Plywood consists of different layers of wood veneer. These layers are glued crosswise to each other, which makes the board very strong and hardly works. These are also the advantages of plywood compared to solid wood. The visible wood grain is also a major advantage. Are you looking for a storage bench with a natural look that fits into an interior with a Scandinavian atmosphere? Then plywood, in every variant, is a suitable choice!

OSB | Contemporary
OSB is a constructively strong board. It is made from pressed wood chips and therefore belongs, like MDF and chipboard, to the family of fibreboards. With OSB, the coarsest wood chips are used, which are all laid in the same direction and then pressed. An OSB board usually consists of 3 of these layers, with the inner layer lying crosswise on the outer two layers. Due to its industrial appearance, OSB is also increasingly used for decorative applications such as furniture. For a contemporary look of your storage box, choose OSB. Want to know more about OSB?
