Plyobox Project

Just thought I would post a recent project of mine. Same dimensions as the Games box.

Re: Plyobox Project

Very nice, I made the same box last week out of an extra piece of CDX plywood (used 2x2 brace inside the box). It's heavy and sturdy and cost ~$20.

Yours looks much cleaner and nicer than mine, well done!

Re: Plyobox Project

Looks very well done Doug! Are you a carpenter or you just decided to take a crack at it?

Re: Plyobox Project

You may want to sand those sharp edges just a bit...just a suggestion.

Re: Plyobox Project

Not gonna be using that box on the 30 in side... looks like it would cave in. The rogue boxes are made a bit differently.

But that thing is amazingly clean. I made some of the slanted plyoboxes and while servicable, they don't look nearly that clean.

Re: Plyobox Project

Thanks guys. Def not a carpenter. My father has a ton of wood working tools and he makes furniture so I took a crack at it.

Stu - Everything has been sanded and rounded down. This was taken before that.

Mike - Def can use the 30" side. The bottom is capped off and an additional sheet was used to brace the long side.

Everything was done with pocket hole screws to keep it clean.

Re: Plyobox Project

Just curious, what did you use for rounding the edges?

Re: Plyobox Project

I actually just used a circular sander and worked my way around. So not a true rounding off. If you have access to a router you can use that. I just didnt really know how to use it properly and didnt want to screw it up.
