I really want to see the final product after you get it all painted up! I especially liked that you included all the the important angles, that's usually where things start to get tricky. Something like this would also be a good project for a larger (relatively) little pickup, like an old Ranger or something.Good work!
I really like seeing clever projects with standard dimensional lumber! The 2-tone wood stain really looks good, the design is very clean and it looks sturdy too, great project!

Very nicely done! I might add some extra padding to allow for rough traveling, but a great idea! I'm thinking that leaving the outside a little rough-looking would be kind of an interesting idea too. sand in down a little to knock the big chunks loos, then clear coat it for protection. That would look good on some of the older tool-boxes.
I really like how that turned out! I happen to have a bunch of old fence pickets laying around, and they are already nice and dark, (so I would skip the staining). I'm thinking that I could just thin down some acrylic semi-gloss (leftover paint), and get a similar look.Also, since mine would be longer, about 4' , I would need another bracket support in the middle. Thanks for the ideas!
That is a genuinely cool way to use Plywood! I'm thinking I may do one like that, maybe a straight bench with 3" wide strips for strength, but I really like the look!
I'm glad to hear that, and I hope that these will serve you well. By the way, 2x boards work just fine for these. They come out heavier, and take up a bit more space when folded up. But they are very sturdy, and work well for heavy things that you might need to hit with a hammer or something.
I like these, especially the reclaimed wood and salvaged hardware! I have used a similar design for years, but I never thought to look at recovered materials, thanks for the tip!
Thanks for the visit, and I hope you get a lot of use out of them.
That is just so stinking Awesome! As an old crew-chief, I really like the vintage fuselage look, Great job!
