Square water melon Answered

How should I know to create the correct dimension of the case for a 7 (16 lbs), 8 (18 lbs) and 9 (20 lbs) Kgs of watermelon?

In the instructables didn't mention the dimensions for each watermelon.

Could you please send me your comments?



Watermelon is a little less dense than water. Water weighs .03608 pound per cubic inch. So for 16 lbs you would need close to 443 cubic inches. Unless I'm wrong, but I don't think so.

Can you calculate that in kilderkins and firkins?


A 16 lb. watermelon should be close to  .107  kilderkins.

Or  .214  firkins.
