Hi Steven and welcome to the forum.  icon_thumleft

Well done with your efforts with this box. That size however would be a little too small for High Power Motors. Certainly will be very useful for smaller motors. As a suggestion a few labels on the box that includes the word "explosive" would certainly set it off.

Great effort though.  great

Thanks for the response I was going to paint it white and put explosives on it. Will fill in the side panels to make a bit thicker and use it for small motors.Can make a box no problem, any suggestion on size? and is there a thickness of the timber that it should be and type of timber that should be used? Thanks for all your help rocketball. As being a new member. I want to be prepared for when I get the big stuff . Thanks again  great

Well done with your efforts Greg! Looks great and will serve the purpose!  great

Last weekend a mate gave me an original World War 2 storage box he had sitting in his shed for years. It use to be used for carrying artillery shells. While needing a bit of restoration these sort of boxes are ideal for transporting and storing high power motors.  icon_thumleft

These sort of boxes are still around tucked away in peoples sheds gathering dust. It does not hurt to ask or advertise that your looking for wooden storage boxes.  icon_thumright
