If you have a CPAP and travel at all this project will make sense to you. Or you may help a friend who has one and may after reading this THANK YOU. Problem #1. When you travel with a CPAP hotels often do not have table space for the unit to be placed on the night stand next to the side of the bed. SOOO it ends up on the floor, which means air into the unit is coming in at floor level, from the back with the hose mounting. This box is made to help avoid some of this problem. PROBLEM #2 portability you are NOT making a glued together box, this may have to be disassembled to fit in the case and go thru airport security or just a suitcase and assemble for the night or longer. That’s why I chose finger joints. Quick assembly and a strong box. Now to do this fast and not have to rethink a to b to c one picture shows the four pieces linked a closer look shows 3 color lines matching a joint I choose red, green , and black. and one unmarked. And a small check mark on what will end up as the up or top edge. My pine pieces of wood are 6 inch long and 4 inch high and full 3/4 finger joints. I traveled in Isreal for two weeks and this cleared airport security. We were two nights at most places so disassemble and slip the pieces into the case along the sides next to the sides of the CPAP. Hardly any space at all. A CPAP unit is about 5 pounds and mine is 11 inches by 7 inches.
Finish the outside to suit. I used one stain on two adjacent sides and another on the other two. At best few will see the full display but take pride in your work. It might even be a home stand needed for by the bed, add a better top board for more stability.

Would a chair be too high?

Great idea and both nicely done and very timely—my Pulmonologist called late yesterday while I was in cardiac therapy to say my unit had arrived. I plan to spend a lot more time trout fishing this summer.

Ha ha, good one, I meant as opposed to putting it on the floor. I gathered this was intended to raise it off the floor.
