I modified Lance’s LJ Chuckbox and was really happy with how much it improved our camping experience last weekend. I knew it would be big and heavy so I made a box joint jig and was overall very happy with the 1/2” Baltic birch unit. It definitely is a two-person load unload but it perfectly holds all the things I already had including my BBQ and stove so for us it’s perfect….heavy but already have a friend begging to make them one this winter

I really like how your box turned out. I’d definitely make one if we went tent camping still.

Always enjoy these chuck boxes because they remind me of how much I enjoyed camping with my family as a kid. You did a great job, especially adapting for your own needs and style.

Looks awesome! I love the addition of the box joints, not only does it look nice, its makes a much stronger joint! You’re the 2nd person this week to complete the Camping Chuck Box, but your right, it makes the camping trip sooooo much easier and enjoyable, just need 2 people to unload it off the truck!

Here’s the link to the other one built this week.

Been looking at chuck box designs today… Good implementation for it… Trying to figure out what makes a good camp kitchen… Need to build something similar, but as a component of a custom built slide in folding truck camper… The commercially available stuff isn’t up to par with what I want to do…

It’s a good looking, well made and practical chuck box. Like the design, so compact and holds a lot of camping stuff. Great work!
