Had to work today, so to pass the time I bult a new box to carry all my T-Maxx stuff. Cool thing is that it didn't cost me a dime because I made it out of shipping crate plywood! It's not painted yet, nor did I draw up plans, but I think it will work just fine.

Sweet

Looks good! Are you gonna paint, varnish or stain it? Is it heavy with all that stuff in there?

Good work!

Weighs about ten pounds, and I am gonna paint it blue or somthing. Don't know really. Whats good is that I work out the back of my Nissan Xterra when I take it out so weight really isn't an issue for me.:cheers:

Well, I carry it by the handle, if you notice, the top and bottom latch together with tool box latches. I carry every thing I own that pertains to RC's.

Yeah, there in the back, 1/4". THe holes in the fron draws are called fingerpulls. We use them on boats because it is a low profile solution when in a tight area. I used them becaus it is fast and free:D

Nicely done. It looks to be well made. I recommend adding some wheels or something. It looks like it might get heavy when fully loaded. Did you use some extra strong hasps to hold top to bottom? Just curious, looks like quite a load for two little hasps to handle. Aw...here I am picking it apart. Dude, sorry. It looks great.
