Building me a toolbox for my trailer...

i don't have a welder, yet , and can't afford one, yet...

but i did have some 3/4 plywood laying around and some black paint...

this thing will be temporary, as in probably a year at least. i wanna go metal after i buy that welder...

anyway, let's begin...











i got 1 coat of black paint, then realized after putting my saws away i forgot to cut the lid at a pivot point


oh well, i will catch that tomorrow after mowing...

no it is not, but the life expectancy on this thing is only a year or so...

it will be painted and sealed on the inside with some of that expanding foam, then touched up with paint. and on the bottom side i am considering some type of plastic spray coating...

ok, i finished up this toolbox... it's ghetto, but effective...

i decided to go without hardware and just use bungees for now.

plus i really want a welder which would mean this box will go when i obtain one...
