Nesting Plyoboxes

Recently I discovered the need for more plyoboxes.
Being in a small space every inch counts.
Scaling the dimensions so they 'nested' addressed the space issue nicely.

Heights are 24", 20", 16" and 12".
The width of the tops being 16, 15.5, 15, and 14.5 respectively.

How much to have a set shipped to Nashville?



(actually I would love the dimensions so I can eventually make my own... care to share so I don't have to polish off my geometry?)

No problems, there's plenty of room between each box.
I was afraid fingers might get crunched if you weren't careful when stacking then, but there's lot's of clearance there too.

I dunno, what's the Pony Express charge for Boston to Nashville?

I'll try to get some measurements in the next few days.

I was also thinking about doing a brief tutorial on some of the steps and short cuts I used. If there's any interest let me know and I'll get it together sooner rather than later.

Re: Nesting Plyoboxes

i was going to build a box this weekend, but I might wait now to get these dimensions because that looks awesome.

Re: Nesting Plyoboxes

Re: Nesting Plyoboxes

I'll chime in here as one more that would love to see the 'how-to'.

I'm sure I can figure it all out but these projects always take WAY longer than I think they should for me. Any tips would be awesome!

Re: Nesting Plyoboxes

I added scrap pieces of plywood inside at the top. My boxes would lock together when stacked.

Bill, I'm curious.
Did you want them to lock when stacked or where you just trying to reinforce the tops?
