Back in Aug I hauled a load of wood home from a place I was working at.
It was a substantial amount of mixed wood mostly Pine and OSB.
I have a Ford Ranger and I had made some in cab boxes for some time ago and also had an open ply box in the tray for “other Stuff” See picture No 5.
Anyway the weather took its toll on it over the years so I decided to make a new one using OSB, as an experiment firstly as having never used OSB before.
So I set to work, I needed a lid and the lid needed to be curved to keep water off and the contents dry, it all also had to be removed every now and again so I put some handles on it as well
It took me quite a considerable time to complete as all the processes I used were all “cutting edge” Learning for me.
Hopefully the design will keep the rain out and any sticky beaks away!!
There is a blog on the construction process.
I have just about exhaused all the material I recovered less a few OSB sheets left over…..lotta fun, and I got lots of funny looks from passers by.
