I got some plywood clip lok box’s in work,I want to use some birch ply to make some kids chairs but it is very expensive as this was my first chair I decided to make a prototype out of the clip lok box which was free. I bought a router and used templates to cut all the chair parts so I can reproduce the chair parts in the birchply ,I dyed the legs blue and varnished the seats.The ply is rough so the finish isnt the best but I think it will look good in nicely finished birchply.

Nice work, good to see your back in the workshop after terrible coloured pencil injurys !!

The timber/ply should last OK as long as you keep it out of the weather.
I used to get combat equipment delivered in theses crates years ago (20Y) when I was working for Rockwell/Boeing.

The the gear arrived the family guys that were at the site used to line up to unload and unpack them so they could remove them for me, more interest in the boxes than the $M of equipment inside,

They made all sorts of items, dog houses, toy boxes, play houses.

From memory they were about 5’ x 5’ 3/4 ply and on a base sled which was almost bullet proof so all they had to do was reassemble them and add a sloping roof!

Thanks Robert,combat type equipment was in this crate at some stage too,sort of odd from combat equipment storage to colourful child’s chair!This is an indoor only chair,the ply is ok but has voids where there was no glue I had to glue and clamp parts of the ply that were unlaminated.The boxes are just like you describe the only bad thing for making the chairs is the big holes where the clip lok attaches has to be avoided when cutting the pattern out.
