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.

Hello,
Thank you, I spent about two days on it but maybe 6 hours total. Started with a 5/8" ply frame ans a 1&1/2" X 12" 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.
Glad you like it!
PS: I also rebuild guitars, make bread all the time and love photography!
