me and my friend were thinking today, and we were wondering if you could build a box out of something besides wood or fiber and plexiglass, and get the same or close results. if any one knows please tell?

they make a product called starboard. its sturdy as hell. its made out of some composite plastic, and it is marine grade. it comes in 1/4, 1/2. and 3/4. you can drill screws in it, and it wont split or splinter. i'm not too sure where to get it.. try home depot, also you can paint on it, or carpet it oh yeah, get the 3/4. the box will be heavy depending on the size
