    Looking a lot better than mine haha, but me and the old man couldn't find anything to put the wood on so we just turned this old ladder on it's side and cut off the wobbly thing. I have a **** ton of sanding to do tomorrow.

    box looks good man, especially for your first one, nice job









































    but for the love of god, GIVE UP THE "FTW FTW FTW FTW FTW" that ***** is getting very old, played out to the max, then times 2, and quite annoying seeing every single person type FTW

    for the record FTW = FTL


    sorry, good box tho
