I work with a completely new scout troop. All the scouts are just 11 years old and they founded the troop themselves. And that means we have no gear!
Built this troop box quick and dirty. Honestly, there are a lot of plans out there for them, but I couldn’t find any that I really liked. This one isn’t very good either, but maybe it will help someone. (I seem to have forgotten to look at this site for examples.)
I made it out of 1/2 inch MDO so that it would be weather resistant, it would take paint well, and it would be light(er) than 3/4 inch material. Piano hinges on the doors. The other side folds down as well, and it has a spot that is sized perfectly for a 2-burner stove.
This is all butt joints with glue and screws. I used epoxy (some of the pot leftover from another project) to cover the screw heads and add a little weatherproofing.
The boys will paint it, and I suspect they will have a good time doing it!
