Step 1: Preparation
- You want your inner box to be 1” larger on all sides than your pan. In this case, the inner box will by 19” by 14”. Because we will be using 1X8 lumber as the outer box, and we will have 1” of insulation below the inner box, the inner box height will be 7”.
- Your outer box will be 3” larger on both sides than the pan (1” for inner box + 2” insulation). Our outer box size is 23” by 18” by 8”, inside dimensions. You can adjust your dimensions according to materials on hand.
