could 12 strips of pvc angle trim be used to make a light but fairly rigid box frame? Answered
i need to make a prop, the base of which is essentially an open upside down box of around 75cm x 75cm x 75cm. i was going to use a large cardboard box but it needs to be able to pack down as flat as possible for transportation and needs to be able to survive potential rain. i'm thinking i could drill a hole in both faces of each end of 12 strips of pvc angle trim (the stuff used around windows and doors), bolt it all together as a frame and attach corrugated plastic panels as the box faces. do you think the resulting box would be rigid enough to survive a few accidental knocks and kicks without collapsing? i'm not intending to add any load to the box other than a few blocks of carved foam for panel decoration.
