Box Plans

There was a link posted some time ago with some good plans to building a squat box. I searched the archives but couldn’t turn up the link I was looking for.

Anyone have any links to building a strong box?

Elitefts.com has one somewhere.

24"x24" 2x4 frame with a 2x4 across the middle. 24x24x1/2 plywood for a top. Try to make at least 4.

Do you really need plans? All you need is a miter saw, measuring tape and some nails.

Yup, and mine are not even meant to be mitered… no 45’s, just 90’s all around with plenty of screws.

Exactly. If you just use 90 degree angles throughout then it should be as simple as…as simple as building a box?
