I have taken this big box camping twice and have never added legs, it is just too heavy loaded with stuff. Both times were truck camping, and I set it up on the tail of the truck and it worked perfect.
My goal in this build was to have some counter space. Seems like when we are camping we never have anywhere to put anything. So, when we use this box I set it up on the tail of the truck and open it up completely.

Legs, I am still using a set of plastic saw horses. For 2 reasons: One they don't weigh much so the box is lighter without them. And two it was easy.

If I had to do it over again, I would make two separate boxes because of the weight! Make them so they stack together somehow. But the only cut list is in the pictures above. I made sure I wrote out all the dimensions to each piece, and then took shots up close to show the pencil numbers. Sorry I made it up as I went because I combined 4 different ideas I liked. But I want to see pictures if you make it! Let me know if you have any other questions. Luke
Very Nice! Looks great.
It is very cool! I loved making it, but no I have only used it twice. The shear weight of it loaded makes it usable from the tailgate of the truck. But that worked out great. Most of my camping is with the Cub Scouts and they have a mess hall at the camp, so we do not do much cooking. :(
So I cut glass as well, and wondering what your thoughts on melting the glass just enough to get the curve out? I collect Dr Pepper and make small drinking glasses but always have the tops left over. So, I cut out the logos and don't really know what to do with them? They are really curved. And if you put them in a Kiln the color of the logos fades to white.

Jim,Sorry I just read your reply. I used a series of stencils, first I printed the logo and cut out the basics, then I printed it out again and cut more of the details and then I used a third to get the stars and stripes. I will try to take some photos.Luke
Here are some pictures of the only copy I found of the original (that I used to make the 3 stencils from), and a better shot with some detail of the logo.
I love it! Great job on the boat. I think your hydrofoils need a bottom, maybe? I can't think how to describe it, so I drew it out. Just an idea to try. I would love to see if it works, or improves the stabilization.
