Question, Tom...
For box number 2, could you shorten the cross members by 3/4", but keep the same width for the plywood. Then you would only need to notch the plywood to clear the brackets, keeping the strength of a continuous 1 x 3 rear frame member?


Rollin,

You and I are on the same page here. I was gong to fix the problem the way you suggested but was to lazy after building the box.

What you suggested is the very thing I planned to do on the rest of the boxes. The wall brackets are 3/4" thick so the 3/4" over hang won't be an issue. And the plywood wouldn't need to be notched.

I'll show what this will look like on the next box build.

Tom ;D

Tom,
This may be late for you, but for others still building, do an internet search on Kreg Jigs.
These amazing little devices take a lot of the squaring problems out of assembling true wood working corners. I know Lowe's stocks them as do better, high end wood working stores.


Chip,

The Kreg jigs are great little additions to any workshop, especially wood working shops. I did consider them in years past but didn't want to spend the money for them on bench work.


Tom
;D
