At one time while my fiancee and I were at a walmart and we purchased for her car a small first aid kit for those occasiones that warrents its use. Well the plastic box that the materials were packaged in is cheaply made and didn’t even have it 2 months and one of the clips that holds it shut broke off. So I put this together out of some scrap ply I had lying around my shop. Gave it a few coats of paint and a front hasp and there ya go. My fiancee wanted the inside red and well it doesn’t look that bad.

Doesn’t look bad? It looks great! I love these ” I have a little time and some left over wood so I made these” types of project.

Welcome to another box builder. They are a great way to use up scraps that otherwise would go to the fireplace. Very nice job both of building & finishing!!!

Any time you can marry simplicity and elegance, you’ve got MY attention.

Very nicely done.

Great Build and you also did a terrific job on the painting!! For once, though, this is one box that I hope doesn’t see much use… ;-)

Thanks for all the comments, all feed back is greatly appreciated. The graffics are painted on but I did cut a template out with my vinyl graphics machine.
