The Unclosed Sum

I couldn’t remember how to construct an example of a two closed subspaces of a Banach space such that their sum is not closed, so I searched online. I found a discussion of an example at physicsforum, and a paper by Schochetman, Smith, and Tsui that characterizes when the sum of two closed subspaces of a Hilbert space will be closed.
