Pie: I will post the project tonight. It is a 24 in wide 31 in long and 13 1/2 Inch high box. Inside the box I have mounted a Twin window fan. Behind the fan will be two 12×24x1 furnace filters and one will be in front. The box is made out of 3/4 MDF the filters are held in tracks made from 3/4×3/4 plywood strips. Currently the project is upside down. when mounted to the ceiling the bottom will be open to change filters. The plans I had called for a sliding bottom that was in a 1/2 in dado. I did not think that the MDF would hold up sliding so I have decided to mount a hard wood strip on the bottom edge and place a hinged plywood bottm so I can not only change the filters but clean the fan when needed. I plan to hang the filter from the ceiling on chain to reduce any vibration.
