    suggestion from a newb

    I just tried this and very happy with the results. If you are like me and have a trunk car and **** at using the tape measurer, but have an idea of what size will fit. Build a model out of carboard first. I am experiementing around with box sizes, depths, heights and didn't really know what the biggest I could fit. By modeling, I gained about 1" of height and 3" of depth. I dunno how many pros do this, but I think it is a good idea. Any of those who build boxes on a regular basis try this?

    What do you mean 1x2s? To support the 1/4" plywood? (ie the corners?)
