I do some subcontracting for the US Navy building shipping crates.
These were for the Improved Fresnel Lens Optical Landing System (IFLOS) for an aircraft carrier. IFLOS is part of the equipment Navy pilots use to land their aircraft on aircraft carriers.
This contract was to crate up one system, I ended up building 4 crate covers for existing pallets.
22 sheets of 3/4 CDX plywood, 16 4×4s, 22 2×4s, and about 500 nails and 200 screws.
This helps pay for my tools and truck so I can do the decorative woodworking that I like.
