Large enough for a standard magazine to lay flat, water proof, recycled redwood lath with magnet door latch. The lath was all from Home Depot lumber spacers that they were throwing away.
<p>I spent about two days on it but maybe 6 hours total. Started with a <br>5/8&quot; ply frame ans a 1&amp;1/2&quot; X 12&quot; Doug fir base then sprayed the <br>outside with contact cement and applying aluminum foil to make it water <br>proof. The lath is what took a long time but was really easy with a chop <br> saw and finish nail gun. I have coated it several times with deck stain <br> and still looks pretty good after about 6 years in our blistering heat <br>in the summer and cold wet winters.</p>
Water proofing...

Hello,<br>Thank you, I spent about two days on it but maybe 6 hours total. Started with a 5/8&quot; ply frame ans a 1&amp;1/2&quot; X 12&quot; Doug fir base then sprayed the outside with contact cement and applying aluminum foil to make it water proof. The lath is what took a long time but was really easy with a chop saw and finish nail gun. I have coated it several times with deck stain and still looks pretty good after about 4 years in our blistering heat in the summer and cold wet winters.<br>Glad you like it!<br>PS: I also rebuild guitars, make bread all the time and love photography!
