Come on....somebody has made one and can give me some ideas. Of course i know how to make a wooden box, but i just wanted to see if anyone had a better idea.
Here is my plan...... 20" high x 20" wide x 24" long. With the back side open to store weights and stuff in to help it stay still while in use.

I haven't made a box, but I've been thinking about it, too.

I'd make the box at least 24" high, though. Most (all?) of the WODs I've seen call for doing box jumps on a 24"-high box.

As an aside, I'm currently using a completely makeshift approach to box jumping. I work out at a commerical gym without any plyometric boxes (what's their problem?). So I put 2 weight benches together, stack 2 100-lb plates on top of each other, and then stack them on top of a 45-lb plate. The 3 plates are then stacked on the benches. This gives me a 25" jumping platform.
