i made a few changes.the shoot was only 3 ft high.its now 6ft.the hose on the top has a round bracket with a square hole in it for the shoot.i made feet on the bottom to raise it up a little.the reason why i raised it is because its going in a basket i made for my trailer.the fan housing doesn't clear the basket sides.

Of the truck leaf box- I have an idea how to frame it together securely, but I wanted to see some other ideas first (preferrably pics-since they are self defining)

BTW, how much did you pay for that hose per foot? Where'd you get it from?

its ok, If you made a wood top for it too, I just want to see the corners, and how there braced together. That is all.:)
