How to make an ammo crate (11"x11"x24")

Postby TomServo » Sat May 19, 2012 11:51 am

Parts: start with 1 X (1x12)10 ft. and 1 X (1x3) 10 ft. finished sizes of boards are .75"x11.25" and .75"x2.5" use 1.5" drywall screws...they're cheaper
Image

Crate Ends: attach two 1x3 boards to each 11.25x9.75, making sure sides are flush AND there is exactly .75" of overhang on either end.
Image

attach sides. drill pilot holes before driving screws. Make sure screws are centered in bottom board, to avoid splitting.

Top and Bottom: attach bottom board, making sure all screws are centered and secure in bottom of side boards. Attach the 11.25" feet flush with ends of bottom board.
Image

Attach top 1x3's to top board, so they would be near flush to insides of bottom 1x3's...see the fucking picture.
Image

To secure the top, you can use either hinges and a latch...OR.. attach boards under the Top board, that fit flush inside of box.

These crates aren't lighter than a plastic bin, but they are burnable, sturdy and with the interlocking tops and bottoms, can be used as small tables or used to make tables.

Stenciling Grenades or RPG-7 on the side will help you entertain the LEO's as well.

If it's a direct hit, the RPG normally takes care of th body itself.

Believe it or not, I did tell one of my house mates that it was a prototype for his coffin.

Ha, your sig is oddly appropriate for a discussion on RPGs.

Funny, that didn't even occur to me, but yes they absolutely are. I was, however, referring to the German one.
