im drawing a muzzleloader shooting box. ive not built many things out of wood and this is the second time ive made my own design. my question is do u think i can go with thinner stock than 3/4? second question is about the top lid and front lid i would like to keep the same thickness throughout the lid and door what would be the best way to do this? on the drawing i forgot to put the measurements 16’ wide13’ tall 10’ deep ant help would be appriciated !

You should be fine with 1/2” stock. What will you keep in the box? When I was shooting black powder, I had compartments for balls, patches, cleaning brushes, percussion caps, powder, etc.

16’x13’x10’? That’s not a shooting box, that’s a garage! Iwould build this from 1/2” baltic birch ply or 1/2” solid stock if you want to make it fancier.
