Well I am making a box for my truck like the one below. I was trying to figure out how big i should cut the slant wood? Ive never been to good at this so I was wondering if you could help. And if Im right the total volume would be 1.25 right? Thanks guys

17.72...he had it right.....but you didn't give us a depth, so I cannot confirm the volume.
