Camp box: Complete!

So, I finally finished my camp box enough to put stuff in it!  I still would like to put a vinyl top on the primary work surface and get/make some little shelves/drawers, but figure I’ll do that when I a) plan another camping trip and b) have some extra funds that aren’t needed for my automatic cat feeder.  Here are some pix!

This is as far as I got in my woodshop class – milled and cut the wood out (with many mistakes) and initially assembled.  In this picture you can see that the screws are the steel/zinc (?) ones. This photo is in my craft room, after moving from Beaverton. I’d had those things in my car since January..

Now we’re at the Davis’ Compound Wood Shop where I have finished cutting and assembling my inner box.  After I had it all dry assembled, I took it apart, glued the pieces down and used pretty brass screws.

Here is the whole-y assembled box. This is what you’ll take out of your car.

Slide the outer frame off and place where you want your cooking station to be.


Slide the sides off the inner box …


… and place them where you’d like. Here, one is set on top of the outer frame as a side-counter, and one as a bottom shelf.

Then place your inner box on top of the outer frame and – wa-la! – you have access to all your cooking gear with room to work!
