Grizz yes it does and the platform section will come off. It rides on rail and a pad in back it isvery easy to slide.

Nice play area. BE sure to keep it closed when not in use. Cats will love it more than the kids ;-)

Wow David what great sand boxes and they look like they are built to last a very long time, way past the age at which the great grandchildren stop playing in the sand box and still have their own little Gazebo to play in.
Excellent build an awesome idea…..thanks for sharing.

Good looking and great design. Where did you get the multi-drawer unit in the background of Photo #6? Looks like an old library card catalogue.
