I needed a storage bin to put all my camping gear in. Things like sleeping bags and pillows need a place to air out and retain their loft, so I built a vented storage bin. the lid isn’t shown, but it is vented just the sides. 99% of this project was done with my Delta tablesaw.

Very nice. I have been struggling with trying to figure out just HOW to keep my sleeping bags stored… This looks like a decent idea…

It looks very nice. Will you be using this to put the sleeping bags in outside of their storage bag? So that everything just lays loosely in the bin and then you’ll bag everything individually right before leaving to use them?

Thanks for all your comments!

The sleeping bags that my wife and I use pack up into very small cases in order to save space in a backpack. It is not good to store the sleeping bags in these cases for a very long time, else the bags could lose their loft and not be warm and comfortable. Plus, when backpacking, after using a sleeping bag it will often have moisture on the outside. So when I get home, I need to let the sleeping bags air out.

It’s also good just to have a single location to store all my gear (sleeping bags, pillows, stoves, packs, mats, etc.)

Very nice. I find it interesting how many hobbies within the woodworking community seem to overlap amoung folks. Woodworking, camping/outdoors. and cooking seem to be the big three….
