Ok well put the box together. Not as easy as i thought..especially since the measurements arent exactly right. Had to cut sume extra wood off but went with what i had. Looks decent though. Just need to carpet sand and screw tight. Carpet should hide the ugly...hopefully its sealed tight. Will find out friday. May post pics..
